Thanks,
I have tried that with no success. Th problem is although the file name now says .pst, the progam itself is still a TXT.
So lazycam does not see it as a post processor selection.
Brian explained to me  how to save it as a .pst file and I can not remember. Too much saw dust I guess.

When you save from notepad, put the filename in quotes.

"mypost.pst"

Thank you very much.
I've been wanting to change a post processor I wrote 7 years ago and couldn't remember that.
Worked great.
