Andre and Frank,

Thank You both for the solid advice and strong "Close Button inclusion" alert. I'll work at remembering it! ;-))

Before I use  the commands in my "real stack", I'll try them out on a small "test stack".

BTW - I'm still on Mac OS 9 and am putting off converting to OS X as long as I can. My fellow Mac User Group look at me as a heretic (or worse) because of my reluctance. :-))

THANKS AGAIN, More Later and TAKE CARE,
Ralph
