Thanks to everyone who answered my two questions. I have only submitted 
questions twice, and on both occasions the solutions were excellent, 
and, I'm emarrassed to say, much simpler than I thought they would be.

My next goal is to be able to help someone they way y'all have helped me.

Thanks again,
