Maybe you've already responded with the answer. But, the ends I'm trying to accomplish removes the former value from the stack and leaves the exchanged value on the stack with Y, Z, and (if possible) the T registers intact.

This – leaving the whole stack or most of it unchanged – usually is not required at all. At least after some slight recoding usually you do not have to hold three intermediate values on the stack.

Example: Calculate R1 + R2*R3^R4 while pushing pi into R4

Code:
AOS      RPN
--------------
RCL      RCL 3
01       RCL 4
+        Pi
RCL      STO 4
02       R↓
*        y^x
RCL      RCL 2
03       *
y^x      RCL 1
Pi       +
EXC
04
=

RPN is different. You can do most calculations without having to keep track of lots of intermediate results – you always work with just two numbers. ;-)

?!? After the exchange the former register content is in X of course.
That's what the EXC command does. As well as the four-step-code in my first post. Y and Z are preserved.

Dieter, again, sorry for my mixup. Yes, your methods accomplish what I need. For some reason, a mental block on my part is gettiing in the way of imagining/picturing the stack. Perhaps, I should create an Excel or Word six-row table to help me physically visualise these.

Thanks
