I'd assumed that you could work out from the above what I'd used.

Ah, my VEDIT three point something roots showing.
I'm afraid your suggestion didn't produce, I'll clarify that, it produced no error message, no cursor movement and certainly no desired result.

Yes, I'd added that too, just in case.
I even paid my fifty bucks and upgraded to 6.11 (from 6.04) and didn't get anywhere.
I should add that the problem is now somewhat academic since I used a competing European product which I learned enough to solve the automation problem in a fraction of the time I've spent p****ing about with VEDIT.
My twenty year or so faith in VEDIT being the shiny tool in my tool-box of text problem solvers has however been seriously dented.
