Hi tinman,

Is it possible to post the actual script, it's seems as though
it may be a simple syntax error but need to see the code
to be sure...

the script has too many characters so it won't let me post it here. Do you have an email address I can mail it to you?
cheers

Hi tinman,

In the code look for a line that looks line this -

{ &notify_me; }

try changing this to either one of the following -

{ notify_me; }
{ &notify_me(); }

I can't run the script from my localhost so am unable to try it.

Hope this helps

{ &notify_me; }

to either

{ notify_me; }
or
{ &notify_me(); }

firstly....do you have any idea what blat. exe is.....have followed the instructions for windaes 98 and changed the settings for blat. exe and put in the line you suggested.......now I am getting the following error......
"It looks like there was an error:
Your script produced this error: (Maybe you didn't strip carriage returns after a network transfer?) "

help!

I don't have a clue what I'm doing!!!

If you haven't done so already, you will need to download
BLAT and install it.....
you can get it by clicking the link below

http://www.interlog.com/~tcharron/blat194.zip

Just follow the install instructions included in the zip file and
try again....

Let me know how you go ;-)
