If what you want to do is create a QLB _from_ your LIB and the QB.LIB, then do: C>link /qu YOURLIB.LIB+QB.LIB,THIS.QLB,nul,BQLB45.LIB; (then do a C>QB /Lthis.qlb) If you want to link to a stand-alone EXE then: C>link main.obj+x.obj+y.obj,prgname.exe,nul,YOURLIB.LIB + QB.LIB; main.obj is the main module; other .OBJs follow if used. At the Libraries: prompt just add in the QB.LIB to whatever other libraries that you're using. Check the manual on how to use LINK.EXE. Check out the README files, too. Ask your sysop to get the QUIK_BAS echo and BASIC7 echo. He won't unless you ask him. chh --- EZPoint V2.2 * Origin: etc. (1:387/800.8)
