There are two different ways to (G)PRINT.  At some time it was expected that 
the new format would superseed the old format but I think that is no longer 

Which version you use depends on what kind of vname it is:

DEF, CDEF generated vnames: GPRINT:vname:CF:format
VDEF generated vnames: GPRINT:vname:format

You don't use VDEFs, so you will have to use the "old" style 
try GPRINT:my500:AVERAGE:"%#.#lf"
