Hi steve, If you want to execute other programs from within you code have a look at Runtime.getRuntime().exec(cmd); Warning once you do this you program will be platfrom dependent. Here is a good example of how to launch an internet browner. Hope that helps. Chris [ November 21, 2003: Message edited by: Chris Harris ]
