Thanks guys for leading me to what I was interested in doing but didn't
know how. I used the following in the message box and got the items of
the profiler. It took a little time to get the profiler in the message
box (at first I thought I had a crash).
In the message box: put shell("system_profiler") NOTE the quotes.
From the profiler list, I found the serial number of my Imac G5 and then
In the message box I typed: if "Serial Number xxxxxxx" is in
shell("system_profiler") then beep 5
Now I have to figure out how to implement any item(s) in the profiler
of a user in an application. At least it is a start.
Any suggestions? Thanks.
Regards ... Bob
