I don't believe there is inconsistency in my statement. I don't want the log
(run), just the statements. A macro is a macro so I can always run it if
need be but the main gist is that I need the statements.
I will just break the statements myself and do the formatting using Don's
Thanks for the help,

You are not consistent. One time you say you don't want to execute
the macro then you say you do.
Question: Where is the "macro" when YOU begin to want it?
Please describe your processing in complete detail.
