Thanks Phil, and also Scott.

  I use an absolute path by appending the relative path to the   
defaultfolder.

I do appreciate your suggestions, but I really can't mess about with  
this issue, which could easily involve a QT and/or a Rev one.  Is  
there a message or property I can rely on to tell me whether a QT  
movie is going to run successfully?  As I said, the movie function  
doesn't seem to work as advertised, so is there anything else?  Ugly  
but effective hacks welcome at this stage......



Best Wishes,
