Thank you for clarifying things.
Looking at the script it makes perfect sense.
I'm very grateful for the starting point.
There will now be a gap in time while I get my head around
these suggestions and try to put them into practice. I may
need to come back and get further clarification ;-)

Unfortunately, I don't get to spend lots of straight time on
this kind of project. Its mostly in fits and starts - not the best
way to get familiar with new things.
