Hi Ken

it answers just my needs BUT

i'd like it stops when the fld "dates" is read.

With your script I get for example
......
from 1783 to 1792 : 0
......
......
from -3 to 7 : 0

For it goes about the year dates of people's birthdate.
It may surely stop with 100 years back !!!!!!
Jesus Christus is too old to come in my list !!!!!
