Mark, You are correct about EDIT.LIST, but the systems I work on don't have EDIT-LIST, and I never think to change the punctuation and try the revised form of the commands - I grew up on EDIT-LIST and SAVE-LIST, etc. I keep forgetting that someone one of the predecessor products decided to move away from the standard Pick spelling of the commands.
When I tried EDIT-LIST and it said 'not a verb', I just went to plan B! Susan M. Lynch F.W.
