I recommend you read up on AmigaDOS commands, things will probably make a lot more sense then. You can download a PDF of The AmigaDOS Manual from http://www.pagetable.com/?p=193. (There was a later version of the AmigaDOS manual covering Release 2 of AmigaDOS. I don't know whether that's available in PDF format though.)
Hi - thanks again. We shall try to use Ed to view the DIR.TXT as i guess multivew is not possible on our version 38 of WB.

Have downloaded the amigados manual. Looks good and will be very helpful in future. Much appreciated
