      ... Definitely a TYPO ... See if this is what you mean: ^!SetDebug On ^!SetArray %SetA%= A ; B ; C ; D ; Etc. ^!SetArray %SetB%= a ; b ; c ; d ; etc. ^!Info

        See if this is what you mean:
        ^!SetDebug On
        ^!SetArray %SetA%="A";"B";"C";"D";"Etc."
        ^!SetArray %SetB%="a";"b";"c";"d";"etc."
        ^!Info SetA=^%SetA%^%NL%SetB=^%SetB%^%NL%
        ; A long line begins
        ^!Set %Choice%=^?{(T=C)Select Look4-Change2 choice==_"1: Look4 ^%SetA%,
        ChangeTo ^%SetB%"|"2: Look4 ^%SetB%, Change2 ^%SetA%"}
        ; The long line ends; in email it looks like two!
        ^!Set %Choice%=^$StrCopyLeft("^%Choice%";1)$
        ^!Info Choice=^%Choice%
        ^!If ^%Choice%=1 ^!SetArray %LookFor%=^%SetA%; %ChangeTo%=^%SetB%
        ^!If ^%Choice%=2 ^!SetArray %LookFor%=^%SetB%; %ChangeTo%=^%SetA%
        ^!Info
        SetA=^%SetA%^%NL%SetB=^%SetB%^%NL%LooK4=^%LookFor%^%NL%Change2=^%ChangeTo%
        ^!Set %N%=0
        :NextCase
        ^!Inc %N%
        ^!Replace "<I>\K^%LookFor^%N%%" >> "^%ChangeTo^%N%%" RWAS
        ^!If ^%N%<^%LookFor0% NextCase

        Note: The long line broken by email wouldn't be very user friendly in
        the practical case involving 26 values; ^%SetA% and ^%SetB% would have
        to be changed to the words SetA and SetB and you would have to
        remember, from the previous Info display, what they represent.when you
        make your choice.
