Agilent ENA E5071C and LabView

First off, a brief overview of my experiment and what I need to measure.  I have an E5017C connected to two horn antennas, one that emits microwaves in a frequency span of 10GHz-20GHz and one that receives the microwaves.  I have an obstacle in the middle on a rotation stage that I can control remotely.  I would like rotate the stage and measure the S21 parameter after every rotation (in steps of degrees or 2 or 5 degrees). 

I have Labview 8.0, but no experience with it.  I have a test program for the controlling of the rotation stage, but I am not sure how to program the ENA. The ENA is hooked to the computer via GPIB.  Can anyone please provide me with advice or a working program for this? I would highly appreciate any help. Thank you very much for your time. Please ask for further questions.
