Sir, I pasted your code into a new notebook and executed it. 
I get
NotebookObject[]  where "Untitled-2" is in the square brackets.

Somehow I expected to see a grid of buttons. Other 
responders seemed pleased with the results but I don't 
understand it. Did I do something wrong or did I just 
misunderstand what to expect?

I'm using V6. Thanks.
