    Default Block Insertion Lisp/ Palette command - - HELP!

    I'm trying to create what should be a very simple lisp routine, or maybe something that can just be put into the pallet as a macro command. Either way; I'm happy as long as it works.

    I need to insert a block named grdot into the drawings, but there are variables. I need it to match the annotation scale, plus a user input prompt for either sheet size B, or D.
    If it's D size, then the block needs to be inserted at twice the annotation scale, for B size, it would just need to be scaled at the annotation scale.

    I'm not having any luck figuring it out and and I'm relatively new at lisp.

    You could write it all in one line or what would be better would be to use a lisp that you pass the block name.
    not tested
    ^c^c^p(if (not insblk)(load "insblk"))(insblk "grdot"))
    lisp file
    (defun insblk (bname  / sheet sz )
    (setq sheet (strcase (getstring "Enter sheet size B or D")))
    ((= sheet "B")(setq sz 2.0))
    ((= sheet "D")(setq sz 1.0))
    (command "-insert" (getpoint) bname sz 0.0)
