I think I see whats happening. I'm not altering the original data in
theImportedData variable rarther the copy of the data thats in the
loop variable. So unless I store this -- I lose it.
And in the second example I am altering the original.
That's great. This was my preferred solution because I was aware of
the problem that Mark hilighted regarding deleting items and using
'down to' in a loop,
Thanks to for your help.
