Kellyjj and Shivers,

I hope this new question would get your attention, i thank you for all your help, but could you please go read my other question's comments...

If you could describe your process simpler for me...or give me some code snippet it would help.  I have mine in a comment, you could tell me what's wrong.  If one of you give me a code snippet that works, you can have 50 more points (that bankrupts me)

THANKS A MILLION

Ok,  I think I see your problem.  In your code snip you gave us,

if [$b800:0000] then ......


you have to actually compare it against something.  [$b800:0000] is not a boolean type.   It actually is of type byte.    

so here a way to do it

if [$b800:0000] ='C' then char_there=TRUE;

if char_there then  writeln("I found a Char");

I hope this makes more sense.

Thanks!  

With your help and the help of newsgroups  (something new to me) I was able to get this done!  What you explained above makes sense, and kinda made me feel stupid...oh well, at least now I know.  

Thanks SOOO much for your help!

Don't worry about it.  Programming can make any one feel dumb.  I still do things that make me feel REAL dumb. hehe  ;]
