Measuring and printing HOA (Height Over All)

So I'm really new to CMMMaster, and I have figured out how to measure the HOA of a part by measuring two points and then going to the report tab and clicking distance between, and then preview. But I can not get the results to add themselves to my other dimensions measured. What am I missing? :?:
FYI, we have a manual CMM and I am measuring with Teach Node OFF.

Maybe just a Report Distance Between while using ZA (Z axis) option vs. 3D option? See below...

Yes, I have gotten that far, but this result will not print out on my report after making 2 or 3 other measurements. Almost everything we do is one off's. So making measuring programs is tedious to futile. so we do almost everything in feature mode.

I don't understand how doing on-off work has any influence on the measurement... Don't think of this as creating a Program, just measure, report, and move on to the next on-off item. Am I missing something here?

I am new to CMM Manager and am looking for help printing out results from measuring two points to get the height of a part. I can produce the measurement, but it appears as a separate window on the bottom of the screen, and I can't get that information to appear on the regular feature report. I have attached a JPG of the screen as far as I can get before the measurement disappears. From that point I can find no way to get it to print.
HELP!

CMSJOE -this is a warning... I moved your new post back into this discussion. Please do not duplicate posts like this again.

Now that you've provided some additional context, I think I see what you are asking. It looks like you just need some help finding your report document. Please remember that each Report Operation you create is automatically added to your Default Report. You just need to 1) Locate the Report Database that's usually on the right side of CMM-M application. 2) Open the report by double clicking on Default Report at top of Report Database 3) You should now see the report opened in Main Graphics area.

Sorry, I could not find the original post i made. I have book marked it so I can find it again.
Here are what my reports looks like. The first from features I can print but does't have the distance between Point 1 and Point 2. The second from Report, can not be printed, but does show the distance, or "Z" Height.

You have the Feature Report open... This is just a list of measured features with Actual values only. Just double click on 'Default Report' right above where your mouse cursor is in the first image.

Press the Print Button... Notice the location is different if you have opened 'Print Preview'
