    Rats, got to this one too late. Good answer Mel.

    Thanks, works just great.
    I should have thought of that, but I didn't.

    Well, it's been a while since I used PB/DOS and the help file
    doesn't specifically state this but have you tried using wild
    cards?
    ------------------
    Did some testing. Apparently not. Please disregard. Oh well.
    ------------------
    Further testing:
    Shelling out to DOS does.

    SHELL "ATTRIB -R C:\PBDOS\*.EXE"

    started a topic Change Read Only Files

    Change Read Only Files

    Let's say that c:\junk contains multiple files that are 'read only'
    I am changing that attribute one file at a time using a looping
    structure/DIR$/ATTRIB. Works just fine, but it's not to my liking.

    How do I turn the 'read only' attibute to off in c:\junk using a
    single statement?

    Suggestions and/or push in the right direction is requested.

    Thanks, Jack
