Please read the email again.  There is no complaint intended nor
intentioned. I think that is clear. Any support or help is appreciated and
accepted gratefully - but posting read the manual is not helpful at this
point. As stated, I have, to the best of my ability and time constraints
read the manual - numerous times. I have a specific problem, in an
environment that has not changed, and need to resolve it.

Thank you for your post. This is what the other poster stated.  I have
forwarded that off to the coder - and will send him this one.

If my post comes across as a complaint - sorry, it is not. I was simply
pointing out my position and difficulty in this.

Thanks again. The last thing I need to do is get the community upset with
