David,

if I understand you correctly you currently see this in your log file:

di "Sometext"
.Sometext

but you want to see

Sometext

The latter is achieved if you put the command into a program. Your
dofile could look like this

quiet {
program myprog
    di "Sometext"
end
}

myprog

program drop myprog

The out put will be:

. do "C:\DOKUME~1\buechte\LOKALE~1\Temp\STD01000000.tmp"

. quiet {

.
. myprog
Sometext

.
. program drop myprog

Hope this helps,

kind regards,
sebastian
