Not been to DC for a while so not read the replies to my "save everything!" request. Hi gtoal, sorry my friend not quite but interesting. Amazing the things Microsoft don't tell you about. MilesAhead - this is a good little program. Although you have to manually press save on the dialogue box which pops up (no problem), it does at least save whatever is in the focused window. Not tried it on all my programs, but I m sure it will work.
Tried Helmet again - still not keen.
Many thanks everybody....................keep coding!!!!!!!!!!!!!
