Thanks to all three of you for your input. I do now understand what is wrong,
but can't work out how to put it right.
I did as you suggested, Dave. But by the time I was able to get to my
computer and read it, the others' replies had come in. So I ran it mainly to
learn how to do it. And I am not entirely sure that I would have understood
the result if I hadn't already known what it was meant to be saying!!
I started to say that I would just have to wait, but on second thoughts I'll
fast forward as suggested, and then go back to do the missing sections.
