Thank you for sending your sample !!!
I worked with your code a bit and changed this line:
put dTime / 300 into pTime-- changed to 300
This made the test move a similar speed (faster than your speed) to a stock
ticker tape but I still have the jerkiness.
I will save your project for future reference though, thanks again!

Using hscroll of a field and the send in time command, I got very smooth

Let me know how it works for you.
