Just a quick one to say I'm glad you got the issue resolved. Thanks for
posting the parameters you used as it'll be useful in case the same problem
crops up in the future.

Also, if it's not too forward of me, hats off to you for resisting the
temptation to join in with the petty argument that's bogged the list down
over the last few days. Having said that, my offer of help if you ever need
a hand from a VI user's perspective stands. Happy to help where I can, even
though I'm no programming guru myself.
