Sorry Rainer, 

Disregard my last mail! 

I forgot one thing. I'm away from my PD machine right now.

Try this:

[label $1<
[send canvas-receive-name]

Then in the properties of the canvas, name the receive to match the send above.

There is some help on this subject in the PD Documentation Project.
Google for the address, download the zip and unpack it in your 5.doc folder.
