CAT commands in N1MM

I am trying to use CAT commands in N1MM function key messages.

My scenario: a Flex 6600 running SSDR 2.4.10. I have two slices open in the same band in the same panadapter. I want to toggle between the two slices with an N1MM function key, making first one slice active and then then other. I have put {CAT1ASC ZZFR;} in a function key message but nothing happens when I press the function key.

Is my syntax wrong?

    Tim, N1MM Logger doesn't allow frequency entering if both radios/VFOs are on same band.

    Thanks, Boyan, for your reply. I will confess I had not thought of that possibility.

    I've done some additional digging and I suspect my problem may also be related to the answer/info supplied by Tim W4TME at https://community.flexradio.com/discussion/comment/19453964#Comment_19453964 where he says:

    "All VFO "B" commands will return a "?" unless the radio has been put into SPLIT mode by issuing the ZZSW1: command. When in split mode, the radio automatically create the VFO B slice (you cannot create it manually). And all VFO B CAT commands sent to the VFO A (parent) slice will respond appropriately. 

    "Programs that support split only have one CAT port, so both VFO A and VFO B CAT commands are sent to one and only one CAT port.  

    "To take the radio out of split, issue the ZZSW0; command."

    So, there is apparently more to this than I first thought.

    Other than Split mode, you do want to setup any 6000 radio as an SO2R not an SO2V radio. Even if it only has 1 SCU.
