Ok, Tim. I believe you're right. If the vbscript is working then I'll continue to use it and expand 
on it. I'll only be using this on my WinXP box anyway. I just didn't want to offend anyone in this 
mailing list with vbscript code. I'm really trying to learn some python basics but I'm no programmer.

Thanks everyone for your help.
