Thanks all of you. I have made the suggested changes. I will need to look at them more in depth.

I have a similar question for those of you with patience. I am trying to remove an item from an array using the delete function. Here is the code:

@statusoption = ('Waiting Approval' , 'Denied' , 'Approved' , 'Ordered +' , 'Building' , 'Built' , 'Shipped'); delete $statusoption[3];
This simply yields ('Waiting Approval' , 'Denied' , 'Approved' , '' , 'Building' , 'Built' , 'Shipped')
I would like to remove 'Ordered' from the array and shift all the other elements down an index truncating the array by 1.

I appreciate you help,
hok_si_la

    That's what splice is for:
    splice(@statusoption, 3, 1);

      Ahhhhhhh! Thanks, you have been most helpful. Have a good super bowl weekend if you are in to that kind of thing.
