Run time error 286

Post by ramyacs55 » November 12th, 2013, 2:59 am


I wanted to run K2657A_DiodeRL.tsp given in examples list. But when I connect the device and try to run it, I get the following error:

-286, TSP Runtime error at line 1: attempt to call global `DiodeRL' (a nil value)

What is the cause of this error and how to rectify this??

The error message about a nil value is indicating that the function DiodeRL has not been defined in your 2657A.

In the user manual, the TSP code that defines the DiodeRL function is listed. This code is also present in the Test Script Builder application. You first need to load this function definition into the runtime memory of the instrument. Then call the function with the passed parameters.
