AutoCAD LT 2008 run named script from macro??

AutoCAD LT 2008 run named script from macro??

AutoCAD LT 2008 run named script from macro??

(OP)
I found how to work a macro that did most of what I wanted which disappeared when the Administrator changed our network.
Legacy scripts run as they always did but dont translate automatically to a macro. I want a single click to: run a named macro or the translation of this code
It is to save and purge in a safe plot-ready state for the next user (me usually).

CODE

tilemode 0
zoom
_extents
pspace
zoom
_extents
purge All * N
qsave
any ideas (while my membership of the official Autodesk forum is being sorted?) TIA

This seems to do it, if there are better ways my addled brain can't be bothered to investigate. 10 years is a long time in the apps/versions game!

CODE

zoom e
tilemode 0
_.PSPACE;
zoom e
-purge All * N
qsave
