Nice demo, but it does not replicate the problem. Maybe >PG:PRO is responsible for the flash. >Barrie That's possible. I'm (finally!) on cable, so go ahead and send your modified code. Can't promise to get to it right away, but I will have a look. If it's working correctly, machine speed shouldn't be a factor, but how fast are you running? Can you also send an override fn that incorporates the delay you use to see the white window? thanks, e-e =J= a y " PS. Be sure to send directly, NOT to the list!
