Hi Charles,

additionally to Richard's answer, plese see my coments below your code.

1. You only provide the STRING "School report" to the SAVE command!
Probably you mean "save STACK "School report..."?

2. You only provided the target FOLDER and no filename!
Hint: specialfolderpath(35) will give you that folder on all win versions!
save STACK "School report" as (specialfolderpath(35) & "/" & "School report.rev"
## Richards debug code here...

Hope that helps.
