Hi Mike!

I agree with you, it should be possible to add a new transaction  in an
If-then-else object where-ever you want, and not only on the bottom.

Stan's suggestions is possible to use, even with big files:

You can save your IF-Then-Else object as an object.
( use "save object" in File menu)
Use an editor to change it, and merge it into your big HP-VEE
program again.
This works fine.
