Hi Shelly, me again! You've helped me recently (though I haven't had a chance yet to follow it up - family stuff! lol).

I've taken the liberty of C&P-ing the above, and will look at it at a later date, when I have some me-time!
Thank you for taking the trouble to do it; it's much appreciated, and I'm sure I speak for other members, too. :-))))
