By the way the second program also worked right out of the box! Thanks again. When I get this part all the way done I will post the resu...

reading the serial port.

In Qb when using the serial port I would do a line like this ON COM(1) then do a com handler subroutine to get the data. FB does not really have this, any ideas? I am new to FB, but have alot of equipment running using com ports using the method I described talking to Transducers and motors and such.
