Your solution worked perfectly and reduces the amount of code I need. Can't
ask for more than that! Totally agree with you regarding readability; in
fact, my handlers often have as many comments as code. Helps me to remember
what th'heck I was thinking when I wrote it!
Many thanks & Happy Holidays!
