Dear Michael,
True, I did not read carefully. Apologies.
Now, I got it. I now know how to use di _request().
I will try to adapt it in my program.
What are the built-in dialogs you mentionned? As I said
I am neophyt, so I apologize if I sound somehow boring.
Best regards.
Amadou.

 You didn't bother to read what Nick posted very carefully.  He pointed          
 out                                                                             
 the _request() option to the display command which takes user input and         
 puts                                                                            
 it into a macro.  To address your larger question -- yes you can do             
 what you                                                                        
 want with dialog boxes -- creating an interactive system.  Many of the          
 built-in dialogs can do just that if you keep submitting different              
 inputs.
