Quick Basic & HP33120A Function Generator

I am controlling an HP33120A with my AT-GPIB board from Natl Inst.

When I try to determine the current output frequency, I use (something like)
the following commands:


The value of RESP$ does not contain the magnitude of the actual frequency.
For example, if I am generating a 1000 hz sine, RESP$ wil display something
like 1.0000000 (It does not give me the E+03 part).

Anybody know what I am doing wrong?
