Hello again, it worked, beautiful, thanks.

It was a bit of a drag as Delphi 7 didn't compile it properly due to the 
mising vcldb etc from the free version, but Turbo Explorer 2006 to the 

It has the missing components and I compiled the *.dpk files with that, I 
incorrectly said I did it by deleting refs in the files while using D7, I 
actually used turbo2006, also had to set all the paths in that to the lib 
and rtl dirs, it was a long day and didn't make all that many notes, I then 
installed the packages into Delphi 7.

Had to make sure a pile of paths were in the right places, one step at a 

I'm here now, big smile on my face too.

Thank you. Kevin.
