Hi,
I take my hat off to those who advise on here (no names) to those who keep asking the same question over and over and over again; sometime using multiple names.
As we used to say in the Royal Navy: BZ.  Bravo Zulu.  Well done.
I find your advice invaluable, thank you.
Andy

    Thanks! As you know, living with my daughter who has ASD has increased my level of patience over the years.
