| Well Aruna, that works perfectly! So simple, I tried that before but I
was doing Shift/Print screen. I am very pleased with this, thank you so
much. I get a lot of these beautiful pictures in attachments and now I can
do something with them, merci beaucoup. All the best.|

Am happy it worked and *avec plaisir :-)
