Albert Great bit of code there, although you did forget the END function after WAIT KEY...

El Go0rf don't need END, since after wait key the program has nothing to do so it terminates anyway.

Nicholas Kingsley Technically, with the latest updates to DBPro, an END statement would be needed, otherwise a messagebox pops up, saying something along the lines of 'You cant run into a function'...
