Hi Mark:

Thank you for this information, I'd probably never would have figured this
out myself.
Your suggestion to add an "Approved" option in the header is exactly the
solution to my problem. It worked the very first time I tried it. If it was
later in the day I'd probably be sipping a cool beer.



PS: A T-Bird forum user told me that the next TB version, 3.1.5, has fixed
this leading blank space issue. Now I don't really care if they have or not.
