I have no doubt, but bear in mind you have years, if not decades, more experience...

Ok, I'm going to go out on a limb here and say what I feel what many of us are thinking here...what crawled up your @$$ and died Russ? You always used to be so happy to help, but now you just leave us all puzzled as you get a sense of satisfaction out of leaving us all questions. Can you please help him here so that he doesn't waste more time when you claim to know the issue? This is a help forum and not a 'belittle you and make you feel stupid' forum.

I am helping. Try to help yourself on occasion. If this forum were not here, what would you do? I know the answer to that one.

Clearly, most of us are pretty smart. Think the problem through. I gave a hint.
