Can you describe the specific problem with your script, perhaps some background as to what it does in your document etc?

I think this was accidentally sent; if not, let me know and I'll try again. Thanks.
Customer reply replied 8 years ago

Okay, let's try to explain this. My script files are short-cut files using the squiggle key! They are in macros and go from script01 to script09. The one that I cannot repair is script 08. This is what it says at the very top (which makes the thing work correctly):

ONERRORCALLrestore~~CALLVARIABLE~RETURN

LABELrestore~CHAINscript09~RETURN. This is what it is supposed to say:

ONERRORCALLrestore~~CALLVAR1!RETURN

LABELrestore~CHAINscript09~RETURN

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
I just realized what I call the squiggle key is really the expandable key!
Tech Support Specialist: Brett Philp, Computer Support Specialist replied 8 years ago
Ok so what is stopping you from editing the script?
Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 8 years ago
I can only edit it so far; the pulldown menu has a variety of things such as RETURN, LABEL, etc., VARIABLE, but not VAR1! And it won't let me type it in. I'm lost! Thanks.
Tech Support Specialist: Brett Philp, Computer Support Specialist replied 8 years ago
WP51 is pretty old but here's a guide that will help you with editing your macro http://www.shkatz.com/macrotut/04_editing.htm#4. Also note the larger guide is available at http://www.shkatz.com/macrotut/tofc.htm

The first link opened, but didn't give me an answer. My script files will let me open them, but the main macro will not! I am using WP5.1 which has been adapated for use in Windows XP. Does that help? The second link doesn't open. Thanks

It just occurred to me. do you have Log-Me-In?

Nope! Sorry. Are you allowed to call me? XXX-XXX-XXXX? Thanks.
Tech Support Specialist: Brett Philp, Computer Support Specialist replied 8 years ago
Sorry there can be no direct contact other than this interface for privacy purposes. I'll opt out at this point and perhaps another expert will be able to direct you further.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
