Thank you, Kim! I honestly didn't think you would get this done this quickly, but I still found myself checking each day to see if there was a file to view. I appreciate your help and, most definitely, appreciate that you did not accept the request until you were sure that I would want it, even if there wasn't much information. That was very kind of you.Thank you!Charmaine
