I haven't used the Application menu in many years - truth be told I forgot how. I entered LFN as the title and the %7 as the script and it did work! Now I just have to read up on how to call the menu entry when I need it - or do I have to hit F9 and then select the entry each time? Not too much of a hassle - certainly not compared to what I have to do now, but if I can limit the keystrokes - less is better.

Thanks for really assisting me! I appreciate it.
