Button Problem

I am using Mathematica 7 to analyze a large data set and have written
a program which runs successfully when invoked as follows:

analyzer["C:\\mdtp\\Jim\\Data\\Data\\Field07Aout.txt", "abc", "All",
  "All", "-9", "PT", "-9", "CC", "EQ", "1", "1", "No", "{1}"];

However, I would like to create a button notebook which allows the
user to change parameters and push a button once the desired
parameters have been chosen.  I've tried the following statements:

Get["C:\\mdtp\\currentparameters.txt"];  (*reads the same parameters
used above from a file*)

Button["Click Here to Produce Summary and Question Analyses",
  analyzer[testnamex, sourcenm, specification, selecteddatnm,
  posttestcorr, posttestnm, coursecorr, coursecorrnm, equator,
  ToExpression[alph], ToExpression[bet], graffile, qtoshow]]

which displays a button--on pushing the button the analyzer routine is
invoked but doesn't complete--no error message is displayed.  I
believe that this button approach is exceeding some time or memory
limit but haven't been able to determine which in order to make the
button invocation method work.  I would appreciate any help on this.
