Using VEE to get N8975B Y Trace Values

Hello, my name is Shawn. I haven't used VEE in a few years. I'm using it again now.

I do not know if a Noise Analyzer problem should be posted in the Network Analyzer or Spectrum analyzer forum. I made a guess and selected Network Analyzers.

Here is my problem: I have a N8975B Noise Figure Analyzer. I am communicating to it via LAN using SCPI commands. It responds to FREQ START/STOP and all of the usual commands.

I have it set to 500 MHz to 5 GHz with 501 points. I want it to return all of the Y values.

I've tried a variety of MEAS commands. I've tried TRAC commands and several others. I have gotten either Header error" or "Syntax error" displayed on the analyzer.

Could someone please tell me what to enter in to my IO transaction in order to get the trace data (basically all of the Y values).
