Thanks Fote.  I didn't see the forrest through the trees again.  For some
reason I always get stuck staring at the source for hours thinking it is
going to make sense and I totally forget about checking the help.

I think I will write *seek help* on my monitor.  Not only will it keep me
from making this same mistake over and over, it should be a great
conversation piece too ;-)
