Hi all thanks for the reply. In the original code it WAS eof and was  
not working then. To reiterate, before I moved from the G4 laptop  
(that I later dropped) to the Intel laptop, all was well. NO coding  
changes took place.

I migrated to the Intel machine using Apple's Migration Assistant and  
resumed what I was doing and that is when I came across this.

I had replaced the EOF with END (although the manual says it's pretty  
much the same thing) and no workie either way.
