Thanks for replies
I have put .asm and I have looked for .txt.
I can see the file called billy.asm in my example folder but mpasm can not see it just the original files that were there from loading software from vellaman programmer.

Try re-saving the file, this has happened to me occasionally. I don't know why, but re-saving it and making sure you save it as 'billy.asm' may work.

if i open any original file with notepad and save it with another name say billyboy.asm with all file types tab on when i goto mpasm it can see it i try to run it and it says dos error file not found

Perhaps, after modding , you need to call it xxx.asm and also while saving you need to define as text only file

Of course, i use word pad for that.
the principle is same even if you use open office. that while saving you need to define the file as text only. then i after opening this file in MPLAB, and if you dont find the style of .asm file with colors and all, i generally cause a small mod like adding a space, to enable me save it. now i save it as .asm file

and reopen, presto, i find the feature that are expected.

You could solve this problem easily by not using notepad either =) There are better free code editors out there.
