Initially this was what I did, but I kept getting an error that scroll-para was undefined. That was when I started paying much closer attention to how Jeff programmed multiple pop-ups to where each dialog could have a distinct action. So I reviewed his style very closely, and experimented and discovered that my solution allowed the scroll-para to be defined and to control its own area. That was when I gained a real appreciation for Jeff's clever programming. This approach works on my set-up (Win98 and /View I successfully had multiple dialogs open, changed values (I even got the /View version up to its release version of 1.0 !!! Why didn't RT think of that. ;-) successfully. I just can't click on the view object. Again though thank you for the timely input. I feel as though I have a much better understanding of managing scrolling now for my own projects.

Yes, sorry, I inadvertantly sent it through Outlook Express without changing the paragraph wrap length. I would be happy to resend it if someone needs the fix without the bother of manually fixing the indents. --Scott
