hey Paul,
I changed it to "contains" (as you suggested) and now it works.  Thanks. 
Still seems like a bug to me since I KNOW that I don't have a space or 
return or anything in the name.

2) I was not aware that RC versions are not necessarily considered stable. 
I had kept using that version, because just about every time I upgraded to a 
new version I had some new problems.

Do you recommend any newer version as truly stable?  Unfortunately, my 
experience with LC is that I just trade one set of problems for a newer set 
of problems.
Thanks,
Larry
