Thnaks, John. Yes I should have mentioned that the laptop was old enough to still have that function. We've since tested it in other applications, and it works just fine. I'm thinking that I'll drag the keyboard from an old (bondi blue) up there and plug it into the macbook to see if it will function as a number pad. It might just function as a keyboard.
