      Need help here .. . can't find an applicable Transscript ... 
must be able to do when standalone ..standalone will be of the 'save 
data' method.

You don't have to use menuPick switch, you can also use "put the selectedText of me into..."

On mouseUp
put the selectedText of me into whereGo
go to card whereGo
do funky things on card whereGO
end mouseUp

The above system does work fine on a Rev standalone.
