Garret,
Thanks for the feedback. I have read through some of that doc. I'll beat
it about some more and make sure that rights are not a cause of my
problems. I had read that rights are a major cause of problems. So I'll
double check.. As for the editors, what I had not found was what file
where to set those vars. I'd guess that I could simply export for the
path to an editor.
