Thanks, Jeremy. Question...does the ini "snip" require any header
text or the bracketed heading of the section, or can I just include a
single line and that will get referenced. For example, for the
settings:

;DCL .ini file created Thu Mar 02 10:01:51 2006
; for C:\Documents and Settings\John Posada\My
Documents\Documentation\RTM.book

and

[GraphFiles]
gif=bmp

can I just use gif=bmp or must I include the [GraphFiles] part also
do I need to include the header portion with the ;
