      I pasted your line from your email reflecting 'C:\Documents and
      Settings\' into the clip and it worked perfectly. If you don't have a
      wrapped line as Phillip suggests maybe it's something to do with the OS.

      I have WinXP Pro, I don't know what Phillip has. What is your OS? If
      it happens to be OS related it can probably be corrected with a couple
      of strategically positioned 'double quotes'.

      To answer the question, why do we need ^!MkDir, the initial request from
      Phillip was to make multiple subfolders in a certain project directory
      using a list of API numbers he acquires somewhere. I assumed, from his
      email, the target folder already existed, and, his clip was designed to
      make subfolders in that existing target folder.
