I' am trying to automate monitoring functions on my Fanuc0iMD based VMC and right now I' am using common variables starting from #610 (incrementing from here) to enter the clock value before a program starts and then entering clock value into #611 when the program ends. I'am incrementing the start and end time variables by 2 (Eg.#610, #612, #614 etc).

Right now the user has to be manually note down the values in these variables before another component starts failing which the values will get overwritten as same variables are used with every new component. Is there a way (Other than Dprint into RS232) to output the common variable values into a program as text values so that it can downloaded from the controller at some later stage ? I use ethernet to transfer the programs into Data server and hence RS232 is not connected on my machine.
