    Default How to call a subprogram

    Mazak T32-3 control and we are trying to call a Mazatrol subprogram from an EIA/ISO program for a milling operation. We get an error 744 program not registered. The Mazatrol pgm # is 1001 so we have a M98 P1001 in the EIA/ISO program. How does the control know to grab mazatrol program 1001? I assume there should be a O1001 or something but not sure how to enter that in the mazatrol program.

    M98P1001 Jump to EIA/ISO and continue
    M198P1001 Jump to MAZATROL and continue
    M99P1001 Jump to EIA/ISO and stop
    M199P1001 Jump to MAZATROL and stop

    Thanks for your help. The M198 did the trick to jump to the mazatrol program but not sure how to jump back into the EIA/ISO after the mazatrol program is finished? For now we just put a next work number in the end block. We had to add a M202 to cancel the milling operation otherwise the spindle wouldn't start. There must be some holy grail for mazatrol that only some of the chosen few know how to operate. I feel like a complete moron! Are there any books that cover some of these operations? Basic Programming? I feel like it should be this hard to do basic programs.
