Hi Jacques,

If you set the font to Monaco and probably many other fonts as well,  
you will see that the second quote in

   put "Où est le dossier “ & quote & “RosData" & quote & " ?" into  

is not the same as the first quote. The third quote is the same as the  
second quote but not the same as the third quote. Make sure that you  
always use the same quote, ASCII 34.

The following line is correct:

   put "Où est le dossier " & quote & "RosData" & quote & " ?" into  

You could also write

    put "Où est le dossier “RosData”?" into laquestion

Best regards,

Mark Schonewille
