Thanx for your help Derek the code worked perfectly!

cheers.....Dwayne

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The simplest way to accomplish this is the following...

global fileToOpen

on startup

put $1 into fileToOpen

end startup

on openStack

if fileToOpen is not empty then

-- Insert the code you are using

-- to open the file

end if

end openStack

I hope this helps.
