writing to external file from Windows standalone: empty files: solved!

Many thanks to Sarah, Bill, and Mark for your responses - commenting  
out the 'open file ... for update' line did the trick. Works great  
now.  : )

This was one of the first things I wrote in the project, when I was  
*really* just starting in Revolution, and I think I used 'open  
file..' and then 'write to file.' Several sources then recommended  
using 'put .. into URL..' so I put that in without deleting the 'open  
file.' The Mac version never minded - I'd made dozens of lists with  
the Mac standalone - guess Windows was pickier about the syntax.

I will probably need to deal with the permissions issue at some point  
but I'm glad it's not now!
