Thank You Sarah! With your help, I was able to use the .Last function along

options (error = .Last)

to get what I wanted. So basically the new code that I need to add to my
process looks like:

.Last <- function() 
     cat("File Completed - WPS2R1 \n",file = "D:\\WPSWork\\WPS Temporary
Data\\_TD7204\\WPS2R.sem ",append=TRUE) 

options (error = .Last)

What about .Last() ?
You can implement a system-wide version - I'm
assuming that is possible on Windows.
