    Wow! Even trying to figure how to word this issue was a problem for me! This answer was "spot on". I have the feeling I will be returning many times. Hope I have an opportunity to help some one as well.

    Thanks again Shawn

    Where were you three hours ago when I first tackled this problem! If I'd only searched for help outside the program, I'd have found you. How I found the forums I'm not sure, but you can bet I'll be back whenever I can't solve something on my own. Many thanks, SHawn!
