Yes thank you . I made a copy and put it with the rest of the stuff I copy to use later when I forget . lol

Thanks again ..

What would you use if it was in same folder as the exe ?

So if the au3 was run from E:\folder what would you use for the c:\temp.txt" ')

if it's in the same directory as the script, use

run("notepad.exe " & @scriptdir & "\temp.txt")

or, if you wanted to do it with working dir, I suppose you could do it like this:

run("notepad.exe temp.txt", "C:\wherever")
though I'm less sure that will work right.
