Thanks for the reply. It's kind of hard for me to critique your reply at 
this point, because I'm starting to understand my problem now. But what 
I liked about your help was that you took it in steps and show each 
process. What's always a little confusing is when people immediately 
resort to examples for help instead of explaining it in words first, 
because often times this just duplicates the confusion for the OP. But 
examples definitely help!
