Thank you all. Your answers are more than valuable to me. I'll study
them carefully, but no doubt, my post has been answered.

By the way, I suppose I am the OP. Since I am not an native English
speaking person, I do not know what it stands for. Perhaps you can
tell me.

>From what I see from your posts, you would have preferred that I
included in my original post my "for loop", so that the post is not so
abstract. I have taken note and I'll make it better next time.

Thank you for your help.
