strange error in a repeat loop

YEsss !
Thanks a lot Thierry and Robert ; both of you where right : I had a  
couple of spaces in item 9 of line 1 of my field !!
Kind of things I should have suspected ; but I was really "brain  
stuck" (not sure this is a good expression ;-)))
Now, my handler is working nicely

Robert thanks also for the revision of the first part of the handler  
and your suggestion of a simpler coding.
I am continuously learning thanks to the conviviality of this list :-).

Tanks again to both of you

Best regard from Grenoble
André
