Glad it worked for you!
Since it's all in the same folder you can most likely simplify it by setting
the default folder before opening the process.

you can do it like

on mouseup
-- the following changes the default folder so that you start in the
location
-- that contains your php script and the file you want to work on.
-- Should avoid the need for an explicit path.
-- as long as both are in the same folder you should be good to go.
-- if they were in different places you might have to provide the full path
to 1 or the other.
set the defaultfolder to "/home/Bill/Desktop/report"

-- much simplified promysql, no long pathing involved
put "nr.php -f tt.conf"into promysql
open process promysql for update
read from process promysql for 500
put it into fld tout
write "quit" to process promysql
close process promysql
end mouseup
