Scott. Thanks so much for your reply. Admittedly, It's going to take me
a bit of time to grok what you posted, but I really do appreciate the
help. I was sure that I was going about the the wrong way, and now I
have a new path to follow. It's really nice to have people lend a hand
when others get stumped. I hope to one day be able to contribute here
in a similar manner!
