Okay, trying that example:

1. I take the first window, the RPG, and paste it in as MSGWINDOW
2. I take the second window, the DSPF, and paste it in as MSGWINDOWD
3. I compile the MSGWINDOWD DSPF
4. I try to compile the MSGWINDOW RPGLE

RDI won't correctly Copy the error text it shows in the file as a result of
the compile, so here is a screen shot:

How does one use Booth Martin's RPG samples? I try copying them from the
web page and pasting them into SEU and they don't compile. Then I try IFS
and RDI and no joy there in either of those.
I looked at
http://www.martinvt.com/Code_Samples/Message_Window/message_window.html
for use as an example. I'm on Windows 7, I am right handed (mouse-wise).

There's a yellow panel with code for 'The RPG for the Message Window
(Free form)'. I use the mouse (ick) and start at the very far left of
the first line of code (the '****' line), beyond the purple border and
slowly move right. I watch the cursor. When it starts out, it's an
arrow pointing to about 11 O'Clock. As the cursor moves into the
'copyable' code, it turns into an I-Beam.

At that point, I press and hold the left mouse button and drag it down
past the bottom border of the pane. This 'selects' all of the text. I
use Ctrl-C to copy the code into the Windows clipboard. I open up a new
member in RDi 9.5.1.2, and press Ctrl-V to paste the code. It pastes
fine for me.

I might, in a moment of weakness, admit to using View Source to select
code from various web pages. Cleanup is often as simple as a keyboard
macro to add in the left-most 5 spaces.
