Kevin, If I remember correctly from the discussions, there is no way to
set the errorlevel from QuickBasic.  I was following the topic pretty
closely, because I too thought it would be useful.  About the only
solution I have been able to come up with is setting up a variable in
the DOS Environment using ENVIRON.  The syntax is ENVIRON "MyError=1".

In your Batch file, you can test "if %MyError%==1 goto label".

Now for the bad news.  Every time I tried to test this, I got an Out of
Memory Error.  Don't knoe how reliable this would be.  gp
