Hi Gary,

Look at these pages from Ken Ray's website:

There is none in MetaCard. You could try to build
something like that yourself. E.g.:

on dial dNumber
  open file "modem:" for write
  write "ATDT" && dNumber to file "modem:"
  close file "modem:"
end dial dNumber

(See the complete post/thread)

Macintosh users that want to dial a Phone number from
MetaCard using a Global Village Voice-Modem must
add "return" after dNumber.

on dial dNumber -- function by Sjoerd Op 't Land
  open file modem: for write
  write "ATDT" && dNumber && return to file modem:
end dial dNumber

As I don't want to close the modem immediately
after dialing, I put the last handler in a button:

on mouseUp
  close file modem:
end mouseUp
