I dunno,but when I opened the link,all I got was the face page for the report. The rest of the Doc pages where blank ! I'll do a little digging(no Coal Pun intended) and see where the rest of it is. Thanx,Gaw ! This is yet another fine example of what makes this place Rock ! Uh,Black Rocks,that is ! :up:
