How to eliminate voltage fluctuation?

Hello people!

I have a simple problem(or difficult) which I cannot solve

When I hook up the Function Generator 33250A with the Oscilloscope MSO5034A, say my input is AC 1 Volt Sine wave, I can see that on my oscilloscope it fluctuates a little bit. I can reduce it by using the averaging function in the Oscilloscope but I cannot eliminate the fluctuation.

The reason why I want to fix this is because I need to do a repeatable test and it is very sensitive to small changes so this fluctuation would give me different result on a single experiment every time.

Is there a function which can 100% eliminate the fluctuation? or a statistical method which I can code up? I've been trying to work on this for a week and still no answer Please help a poor guys out..
