      Try opening a doc you have not changed yet (tabs) and the .fpr
      file. Change the tab data, save and reload. See what fields are
      added/changed. If you can correctly determine that, then it is
      just a matter of editing the .fpr file. (I'll try to remember to
      ask Eric if he has the format codes for the .fpr.) And, you are
      right, he may not have the cheat sheet in which case he would
      have to look inside at the source code; wishful thinking on
      getting that done until we start upgrading it. :)

      The following needs to be replied to on the Clips list, if you
      need help with it; see my signature line:

      You might be able to modify one of my Clips in my DirStuff.

      I have a number of Clips that work with directories in my
      DirStuff. You'll find some that you can modify to do what you
      want. Look for ones that use ^$GetFiles instead of the ones with
      the older method using ^$GetFileFirst/^$GetFileNext although those
      still have good use for some purposes. Try right clicking over the
      Library combobox and choose "Open as Document" and then do a Find
      for ^$GetFiles. ^$GetFiles can also do sub-directories by option.
      They'll use ^!SetArray.

      In the loop that opens files, add the ^!Menu Document/Properties
      command. You might be able to use ^!Keyboard in the Properties
      dialog, but most those windows are modal (?) and you cannot use
      the ^!Keyboard command in them, but it may be easier that doing a
      copy/paste or simply a Save As...
