      Jeffery,

      If, in fact, the ampersand you refer to is in one of the 'Open
      Directory...' clips in the 'Dirstuff' clipbook the answer is, 'it makes
      no difference to the execution of the clip.

      The ampersand is in that line to 'underscore' the letter following it
      when the choice is displayed in the clipbook wizard.

      Jeff, My guess is, that the wizrd mix of single = and doubles (==) is giving the error. Try replacing the single = before the choices with a double == .

        Jeff,


        My guess is, that the wizrd mix of single '=' and doubles (==) is
        giving the error.

        Try replacing the single '=' before the choices with a double '=='.


        Cheers,


        Eb

          Jeff,

          After copying the clip from your email I corrected the long line, first,
          by selecting it and using Ctrl+J to join it into one long line.

          Second, by adding double quotes around the 'Type' variable, as below.
          > ^!SetArray
          %FileList%=^$GetFiles("^%Subs%^%Folder%";^%Type%;;^%Rev%^%Sort%)$

          ^!SetArray
          %FileList%=^$GetFiles("^%Subs%^%Folder%";"^%Type%";;^%Rev%^%Sort%)$


          Third, by joining the line below.
          > ^!Set
          > %File%=^$GetName("^%FileList^%Index%%")$^$GetExt("^%FileList^%Index%%")$

          ^!Set
          %File%=^$GetName("^%FileList^%Index%%")$^$GetExt("^%FileList^%Index%%")$

          The line may have been wrapped by pasting into email.

          Also remove these lines or lead them with a semi-colon.

          ; <END LONG LINE>
          ; <END LONG LINE>

          The clip worked as expected following the above corrections.

            That was it, Jody wrote some fantastic clips, and some of them worked
            out of the box, but a couple are "glitchy" in the most recent version,
