  It works like this, simply erase everything BUT

DECLARE SUB pokebuffer (cmd$)

  Put that at the very top.  Also you need... (its wise to keep the REM's)

SUB pokebuffer (cmd$) STATIC

  That becomes hidden so you won't see it.  Get those together in one file,
  then use the QB "merge" on the file menu.  Now you have this real easy to
  use cammand that works like print, anywhere in your programme.

CALL pokebuffer ( "Testfile.EXE" )

   Then when your programme is done, it runs Testfile.EXE.
   I knew the message you were talk'n about.   Peace
