Thank you kind sir for the little trick I should have known about but 
didn't. I found this reply in my SM junk folder along with a lot of 
other list mail and will be glad when SM gets fully trained-:))
I realize that SM is not the latest version; just haven't had time to 
look at your retained emails yet. A quick google and I now have it 
downloaded to install.  Thanks for the reminder.
