Please be aware that it was pointed out that one can configure org-agenda-skip-unavailable-files to a non-nil value if she wants non-existing/unreadable files to be skipped. But that option isn't mentioned in the manual or the docstring of the org-agenda-files option. The problem is known and has been a source of great frustration, that's why it was introduced. Daniela is quite right. If multiple people don't want to help her, that's fine, many others will. --------------------- Christopher Dimech General Administrator - Naiad Informatics - GNU Project (Geocomputation) - Geophysical Simulation - Geological Subsurface Mapping - Disaster Preparedness and Mitigation - Natural Resource Exploration and Production - Free Software Advocacy > -- > Tim Cross > >
