Thanks Edgar.
Your script worked fine although I'd need to do some sleuthing on how to transmit a newline.

And @diligence's DVC script also worked. I had tried using a longer phrase in a KB command, and got a "too long" type error, but running it as a DVC script works just fine. I guess the old technology is better for some things.

And in case I wasn't clear, I've been using Auto-text commands in DNS and OpenOffice for decades. The text is copied to the clipboard and then pasted into the application (if you use a clipboard manager, you can watch it happen). That copy/paste paradigm stopped working some months ago, about the time MS win10 made the clipboard shareable across devices. I hope you never run into the problem, but I'm often working on a document for hours at a time, and after a bit of time copy paste starts misbehaving and incorrect material is pasted into OO. [I even replaced my PC, but had the same problem]

I consider the problem solved. Thanks for the help.
