SX30-Focus bracketing

Is any one succesfully using focus bracketing on the SX30. I have set it up according to a CHDK article on DoF_stacking on this web-site which is a general article and not specific to the SX30.
I have upgraded to the latest version of CHDK hoping this would resolve the issue.
I have tried various combinations of parameter changes, no success.
Any suggestions -Thanks

Hello & welcome, moshots !
I have tried various combinations of parameter changes, no success.
You may report here what you've already done / tested and also the settings you've used, also the article you've mentioned...

the link to the article is  http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/DoF_Stacking.
Since my first post I have tried the SX30 in standard mode(no CHDK) and find that bracketing works O.K. with Exposure but does not work with Focus bracket. This could be the reason as to why CHDK is not working.
So I need to establish that the script works on another SX30.

Subject distance (SD) override only works in manual focus (MF) mode on the SX30.
Try enabling MF before shooting.

Since the SX20 is similar to the SX30, you might want to also check out the settings mentioned in the "Basic instructions for MF-DOF bracketing/stacking" section for this script http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php?topic=6054.msg67661#msg67661

Good luck!
