Bug in previous version : When first run the procedure bugged out of the

To run the dialer program Play the Script JTDial. On the first run a Setup
Table will be created and you will be placed in Paradox with the setup table in
view. Change the Fields by editing the appropriate fields. In particular you
will have to change the Fields "Table Name", "Name Field" and "Phone Field".
