How to calculate liquid film mass in prostar?

Hi, everyone.
I wanna calculate the total liquid film mass on the cylinder wall(liner) boundary in IC engine by using pro-Star's postprocessing utility(data loaded from *.ccmt file).

The commands I used as follows:
----------------------------------------------------------------
bset,newset,region,11
! boundary region 11->stands for liner
cset,newset,bset
operate,getw,lfm_1,1
!put area average liquid film mass in register 1(kg/m^2)
operate,getw,area,2
!put (wall)area in register 2,the unit of area ( mm^2)
operate,multi,1,2,3
!put the product of register1*register2 to register 3
operate,smulti,1.0e-6,3,4
!put the product of 1.0e-6*register3 to register 4 (kg)
summarise,cset
----------------------------------------------------------------
but the last command cannot get the right results.
Can anyone help me?
thanks!

This may work better:

bset,newset,region,11
! boundary region 11->stands for liner
operate,getw,lfm_1,1
vset news bset
cset news vset all
cset subs shell
!put area average liquid film mass in register 1(kg/m^2)
operate,getw,area,2
!put (wall)area in register 2,the unit of area ( mm^2)
operate,multi,1,2,3
!put the product of register1*register2 to register 3
operate,smulti,1.0e-6,3,4
!put the product of 1.0e-6*register3 to register 4 (kg)
