Does anyone know of a convenient way to automatically save data in VNMR6.1? Occasionally, if an experiment is left to run overnight, I am not able to reach the terminal in time before another user runs an experiment. I would like to be able to tell the software to save the data once acquisition is complete.

Thank you for your time!

I think the variable "wexp" is something that can be used for this; you can specify a command/macro that will be executed once the experiment completes. See the "Command and Parameter Reference" manual for more information and syntax.

I often use "wexp" for this purpose. You can use the "n1" variable to store a text string (the full path name under which you wish to store the fid). Then set wexp='svf(n1)' and begin the experiment with "au". The fid will automatically be saved at the "n1" location.

For example, n1='/home/username/mydata/name' would produce a fid at /home/username/mydata/name.fid.

If you forget to start with "au", you can always enter "wexp(n1)" as a command on the command line. This will then do the same thing as if you started the experiment with an "au"

If you use the "run" command to start the experiment it will ask for a file name and should save the experiment when it is finished.
