That's correct. Rainbow, you are a magician! Thank you so much for your help.

Ah, I guess you are the Rainbow to which janpopan was referring...

Yeah, sure. Let's give it a shot. I'll make my e-mail address visible in my profile. If there's anything else you'd like me to do, just let me know.

Thanks!
