The multimeter is unable to record LOG data ..
What it can do is to transmit the measurement at the computer.

Only the modules ( Volt / Current / Temp ) have internal memory so to store in them data log sessions.

This problem due to the internal memory look to me very strange to understand, since I can see the data logged in the graphical image, so in fact the value is pass to the computer, then I don't see why it cannot be saved.

You are welcome, and I bet that many more will come down to this topic, Fluke did not present those details in their Users manual and it is logical many people to need help so to solve this puzzle.

Also undocumented is how to set the DMM as client for the USB stick.
Power - up option ->  Press the wireless button & Power up the meter. ( MOD on screen)  ;)

This is another software restriction, which translates that Fluke does not wish just the DMM measurements to be that usable.
Could be due their marketing plan, so to sale more modules.

Yes I got mad about this finding too, mostly because it forbids the wider use of this system about logging DC volts or DC current by the multimeter.

Agilent U1270 series and their wireless solution is more friendly for wider use, but not an actual replacement of the CNX 3000. 
 
For an electrician it could be a better choice to set just a probe to log data, and have his multimeter at hand for other measurements,  than be closed in a metallic cabinet for a long period of time.

What I am saying is that there is advantages and disadvantages which its person it should considerate prior getting this system.
