Thanks again for the help I would never have worked out this lot.
A couple of things, it seems strange that we can use methods from classes in the same base folder as the calling class.
But why, with a java program can we not set the classpath in Notepad for a class anywhere on the computer on on the web for that matter? Why is java so deficient in such a basic construct of the language?
I need to go and take a nap then read all about command prompts, bat. files and packages.
Tell Workman cheers as well, I looked at my old posts and removed the capitals bit about "I tried this 20 times ....." I did not realize that it looked as though I was getting angry.
