You're frustrated? What about me? I keep telling you what to do, but you completely ignore what I say.
I'll try once more in language a 5-year-old would understand.
1. Open a DOS window 2. Type: notepad ControlFile.ctl <Enter> this means you must hit the key with Enter on it 2a Type: C:/myfolder/for005.dat <Enter> 2b Click the wee cross at the top right corner of the window and when it asks if you want to save, click Save. 3. At the DOS prompt type: C:/myfolder/myprogram.exe < ControlFile.ctl <Enter>
