Hello, I have my word counter working, except for one strange behavior: If I process a 36k file, the results are displayed just fine. When I process a 5000k file (1 second!), where the displayed results approach the 32k EF limit, the results flash on the screen, then instantly disappear. If I then use the scroll bar (drag the thumb down, then up), the text reappears as though it had been there all the time. I have tried all the combinations of WINDOW, EDIT FIELD, WINDOW FILL, SCROLL BUTTON and INVALRECT statements I can imagine, all with the same results (or worse). Any ideas? I'll be glad to send the project (32k) to anyone wanting to take a look.
