Hi Alex, I don't agree with your comments regarding error handling. In the context of what I am trying to achieve with the clip, robust error handling is perfectly valid.
This clip is just one of many clips which is included in a Clipbook I am creating which will soon be uploaded to the group.
The clip in question will open an outline document which includes concise instructions on how to use the other clips in the Clipbook.
a) if the outline document was not in the expected location (My Documents), the first error handling routine gives the user the opportunity to locate the file.
b) If the user then browses for the file and for any reason the chosen file can not be opened, we as programmers must handle that error by providing feedback to the user.
I don't see any problem with this approach.

who hardly understand what they're doing and are easily stumped. Clips
will only be shared among other users who even if beginners can be
assumed to have some incling about the language and what it does. I only
include error routines where I want the clip to react and carry on
appropriately. If it stops and I have to intervene anyway I see them as
