Using Send Event to open a USR file from a USR file


People I owe you an apology and HELP!

About a year ago I raised a query about opening multiple usr files from within a control panel usr file.

The suggested solution centred on the Send Event command, I thought at the time I'd got it working, but due to being scared of the command, I put it to one side, and used the open file command (with no file stipulated you can select from the list oferred). Even with this command I've had a problem, when I try to name the file to run it as a button, the standalone USR forgets the path where the other USR file is located. The only thing I've amnaged to get to work is to leave the file name blank

 I have now reached the point where I need to get the send event command to work.

But in both FP7 mode and USR mode it just sits there and does nothing when I run the command. I've checked the combined path and file name and everything seems visually OK.

 Ive copied the relevant lines below can anyone see what I'm doing wrong?

Set Variable [$$NewGame, Value:$$FullPath & $$FileName]

Send Event ["aevt";"odoc";"$$NewGame"]

(please ignore any small typos I couldn't get the windows copy command to work.)
