Thanks. But I kind of misinformed you. The function I wrote calculates a 
hard-coded path, so it isn't reallly a relative one. But it works.

If you move your working notepad data stack into the mainstack's folder, 
it will work as it does now. Any changes you make to it will be 
permanent. The copy isn't made until you build a standalone. It's easier 
to maintain only one working copy of a stack.
