Hi Terry,
Thank you for the info. It appears that one would have to assume that,  
if ask/answer is used,
if it works in development it should work elsewhere.  I am aware that 
in build  ask/answer
has to be selected in resources.  Wonder why it is not available if one 
wants to check his work in a "project" situation rather than having to 
build a standalone  each time ask/answer is used.
  Again, thanks.

Regards ... Bob
