thanks for your response.....

I'd love to agree with you but I am simply not that technical at this
Although what you say makes sense, I am still building the knowledge
which would lead me to your conclusions..... hence my posting:)

I was focusing my attention on line 736...... but I only have the vaguest
regarding reading code...... once again, hence my post......

Thanks again for this reply, it certainly gives me a bit to look into 
and find out about......
