I can, but it's much more slower and it would mean to make it completely again. Maybe I could use load/next but how to convert invalid word to word? I would like to have at least special load refinement to convert invalid words to something usable (strings are not the best solution, because than I may have problem recognize if it was normal string or just a variable which was not parsed as a normal datatype - that means I would like to have something I what I call 'invalid datatype' But it looks that i will have to wait a few years (if I would have a luck a something will happen) GS> Regards, GS> Gabriele.
