Hi Gabriel

Thanks for the reply. I actually spotted my error (simple, stupid that i
hadn't noticed). I had the create method creating an object if it could
find a suitable class and importing a suitable class if it couldn't find
one. I rather stupidly forgot to actually create an object after
importing the class!

I was completely stuck - it's amazing what a night's sleep will do for you!

Thanks,

John
