Hey Roger,
Wasn't this the Trace tool in SC ?  You were always impressed with  
that ;-)

Seeing it was in SC, I would have thought somebody that still has SC  
and is a lot brighter than the two of us put together, could "extract"  
and clone the appropriate script.

BTW, what's all of this "Howdy" ?  Methinks you've been spending too  
much time in Montana !!

best, Bob...
