      First I tried:

      ^!InsertText ^$StrFill("*^";^?[How many times?=])$

      And I got bunches or repeats of the file pathname. Then I tried:

      H="Border"
      *^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^

      And the same thing happened. Then I tried:

      ^!Keyboard #^$StrFill("*^";^?[How many times?=])$#

      Before I finally came up with the solution that I did.

      Here is one to allow you to select a pattern from another place or document
      and use it as a border by copying it to the clipboard and running the
      following:

      ^$StrFill("^$GetClipboard$";^?[How many times?=30])$

      Regards,

      Larry
