Try the form:
[description], *.extension, where description is

answer file "Open Music:" with filter
"MyMusicText,*.txt" any rate, this form requires the actual
extension, and the file 
has to be in the default folder.


From: "Wilhelm Sanke" <sanke at> 
answer file "Choose a textfile" with filter
# select a file from a folder
# put it into ChosenFile                         
#  i.e. path + file
put "file:"&Chosenfile into URLfile
# create format for URL downloading
put URL URLfile into fld "Textdisplay"


thanks for the ideas.
they will use come in handy when
i start cross-platforming to Windows.
