Hi There,
I have a program, which is now working because of DrDelphi and AlexVirochovsky

I now have a problem.  would anyone know how to call run a function main of a program added into a C++ Builder Project.  I have Parse.cpp and I need to run that from Check syntax on my Main form.  Thanks for all the help so far and  any other help.

If you're talking about running an executable from your current program, then have a look at Winapi function ShellExecute:

// include SHLOBJ.H in your CPP file.
#include <shlobj.h>

ShellExecute(Handle, "open", "yourprogam.exe", 0, "C:\\yourdirectory", "parameters","defaultdirectory",SW_HIDE);

First of all you should go to Projects and add the Parse.cpp file to your project.  Next,add the #include "Parse.cpp" or "Parse.h" if it has a header file at the top of your main form with the other includes.  Then you should be able to call the function(s) in Parse.cpp
