11. SETTING AND DISPLAYING DATA
In addition to the normal listing of the numbers and names of CNC
programs stored in memory, programs can be listed in units of groups,
according to the product to be machined, for example.
To assign CNC programs to the same group, assign names to those
programs, beginning each name with the same character string.
By searching through the program names for a specified character string,
the program numbers and names of all the programs having names
including that string are listed.
