  Why do you have a $INCLUDE?  You did NOT mention it in your other posts.

  The help here presumes that you accurately describe what you're doing.
 If you're not doing that, the help will be unhelpful.

  So when you were told to put the entry on line 1, you instead put it
on the bottom of the file?

  That makes absolutely no sense.

  Given your other mis-statments, I think you're wrong here, too.  When
you follow the documentation and instructions here, it WILL WORK.  Doing
random other things will make it NOT WORK.

  I have no idea what you're doing, or what you changed to make it work.
 And likely neither do you.
