Command Expert & 34970A: Measuring Current

I'm trying to make sure I'm using the right commands with Command Expert before I use Python commands. Using GPIB interface and using the 34901A modules. I am able to display current off the data logger's display so I know it isn't a hardware configuration issue. I'm sure I just don't have the correct measure setup.


This is how I have it setup...


In order to read Measuring Current, I need those first four formatting commands (according to Command Expert). Which is why those are added to the sequence...


However, I'm unable to extract Current. Not sure where to go next...My error with Command Expert:
