      Why do you want a border like that anyway? You just want to be cute and
      show us something we can't do because ^* returns the file name when you
      call the clip. I used the clip below because the ^!Keyboard command will
      send keystrokes to the document in focus if you place spaces between the
      characters. If you put the characters inside # pairs then it fails.

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

      Fails but:

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

      Works.

      ... It works very well. Very elegant. I was running in place trying to set up a variable like ^%CARET% -- and define one for star. Thank you once again. -pat

        I was running in place trying to set up a variable like ^%CARET%
        -- and define one for star.

        Thank you once again.

        These borders are used for newsletters and email announcements...
        Most are simple text inserts but this one stopped me!

        Hi Larry and Pat, ... Here s an even simpler solution: ^$StrFill( *^ ;^?[How many times?=30])$ As you can see, the ^!Keyboard command is not necessary here.

          Here's an even simpler solution:

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

          As you can see, the ^!Keyboard command is not necessary here.

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