> How do I tell qbasic to go back to a certain field to edit it's contents?
This would be tough. See if you can live with the following: I modified the program (It is now version 1b) to have an Edit option. If you choose it, you get a NOTEPAD screen. Just be careful to only change the values of fields. Don't add or delete fields. And don't mess with line 1.
>how would I go about creating a field under "TELE." (teleprompter) that gives a shows estimated run time by adding all the time fields up on the story line (entered as MM:SS)?
I don't really know what you mean. How about you do this: Enter a typical rundown. Say its number is "02", then get into NOTEPAD as described above. Copy everything you see and paste it into a reply here. That way, I can see what your data looks like.
