    I am able to get back the Files from a directory in DOS 7.1 with more then seven sub-directories. The only problem is that the PB3.5 ChgDir Function will not work.
    Any help much appreciated.

    Assuming ChgDir is a typo (correct syntax is "ChDir {path}), can
    you be more specific on what isn't working? What error message(s)
    are you receiving? Maybe post a code snippet. What O/S are you
    running with DOS v7.1? I personally haven't had any problems
    with ChDir.

    One possibility: PB/DOS can't digest long file names. If you are
    trying LFN's, try using short file names instead.

    There are no atheists in a fox hole or the morning of a math test.
    If my flag offends you, I'll help you pack.
