no, not quite.

Main stack -> spash screen (opens data stack)
## OK
   data stack -> substack to save data
## NO substack, please, since it is part of the mainstack and thus part 
of
the standalone, that cannot be saved.

Make the datastack a separate stack.

Hint:
If you give that stack a fancy name like "data.dat", this will not only 
look
VERY professional (there is no buiness like show-business ;-) but will 
also
prevent most windows-users (supposing that's your target-platform)
from trying to doubleclick that file :-)

Of course you can still access that stack, since it is still a valid
RR-document, only in disguise...

Hope that helps.


Greeting from very hot germany
