As per Steve and Larry, your PDoxDOS option is the separate SQL Link(s?) 
add-on that added some extra menu options.


For readability, I've always converted the QBE syntax to standard PAL, 
using that QRY2PAL script that I think I sent you previously. That 
generated PAL code is very readable, and still very easy to change. In 
execution, it uses mostly the MENU command and options, to build the 
query on-the-fly. If your emulator handles MENU commands, etc, this 
approach might also be feasible?
