i thought i was using a silktest function for a test i wrote awhile back -- i forgot the code (i only used it once!) and when i referred to SK, i couldn't find it -- but i remember the purpose: if i have a constant Caption with dynamic text following it, i can request that any text which has Caption prior to it be printed, and i get the results i am looking for. all i remember from the function is the '^'symbol within the code (i.e.: "^text"); can anyone refresh my feeble memory??? thanks alot!!
