    Does anyone know how to insert a wav. file in a program? Seems that I fall asleep before a program is finished running and I need PCDMIS to play a .wav file to wake me up.

        INSERT ~ REPORT COMMAND ~ EXTERNAL OBJECT
        Then choose create from file, then find the WAV file and insert it. You will have to 'double mark' it so that the icon and a small area around the icon shows 'hash' marks.

          You might want to check out this post. This was discussed in some detail there:

            I'm not sure what version you are using but I"m using v3.7MR1 and it does not work by just inserting a .WAV file. You have to make a ".BAT" and add "start <path to wave file" into the ".BAT" file.

            When you insert external command, choose this ".BAT" file. The "start <path>" command in the ".BAT" file initiates windows to open that file with your default .WAV player (Usually Windows Media). If you don't want Wmplayer to play this file you will have to go into the folder options and change the default program used to open this type of file.

            Goodluck.

                    Matt- Im not sure where I got that link from, to be quite honest, Ive had it in "my favorites" for years, lol. It is lots of fun to put silly .wav's in the middle of a program and watch operators scramble when the machine talks to them.

                      Heck, maybe I got it from YOU, oh so many years ago. I have been using it as long as I can remember, I think.

                        I would really like to add a sound to a program, but I am having trouble.

                        I tried "Insert" | "External Object" | then selected a .WAV file from "Windows NT" > "Pinball".
                        when I ran the program, the sound played just fine, but the program stopped running - I had to click "Continue" for it to resume.

                        I would like to try the .BAT file option mentioned above, but I wouldn't even know where to start.
                        Can someone help?

                        Thanks,
                        Keith

                          I think you have to choose the "no wait" option.

                          Read my post about setting up the .bat file.
