The method of saving your hash table information is to use the /hsave command (and /hload to load it up next time)

These are well documented in the help file, and noting that the format is similar to that of an ini file, I would like to recommend that you read up on those commands, as they have a -i switch, which makes the information stored compatable with the ini file format.

Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner on this, but I had some problems with my phone line, which affected my internet, as I use a DSL connection.

I'm glad to see that you put a lot of effort into this, and your posts have answered a few questions that I was going to to incorporate that information with what I already had.
