Sterling work, Doug! cheers.gif

Thank you not only for all the solutions you give to countless here on UA, but also for having the backs of us lesser mortals when we make schoolboy errors in our posts.

You have an eye for detail that I can only aspire to - thanks for bailing me out on so many occasions!

Looking forward to your next 20k!

When I first came to UtterAccess years ago, you were one of several individuals that I was greatly impressed with. Soon, I'll be repeating this message when you get your 50,000th Post! Hats off to you.hat_tip.gif
