Hi David,
Thanks for your reaction.
You write "So blanking entries is done by entering _ instead of a number."
I'm not sure I fully understand this.
I have tried to get a number, for instance #3 on the second row by entering < _
3+ >, but that didn't change anything; the #3 stayed on the top line.
I used the method just given by Malte Meyn.
Best regards,
Robert Blackstone
