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
