Thanks for the kick in the butt.

GrandFather was actually trying to help you - by posting a concise, easily digestable description of the problem, you are much more likely to get the pointers you are looking for.

I have spent most of my evening on this

Well, it is your evening - don't expect people to wade through screenfuls of text to try to figure out your problem. See above.

    I was by no means trying to insult anyone; just trying to articulate I was working toward a solution. thanks.

    mjscott2702:

    I notice from your user node that you're in Scotland, so a quick note: he used "Thanks for the kick in the butt" as slang for "Oops! Thanks for pointing me in the right direction", with a bit of self deprecation (like Homer Simpson's "D'oh!") thrown in. "Thanks for the whack with the cluebat" would be an equivalent expression (among a bazillion others).

    ...roboticus

    When your only tool is a hammer, all problems look like your thumb.

      Maybe I was a little hasty to jump on that, the tone more than anything else seemed rather ungracious to me, but maybe that's just me - apologies all round.

      Yep, I am in Scotland, but lived in the United States for several years, so can (usually) pick up on slang from either side of the pond - sometime humor (or humour), even self-deprecating, can come across differently from that intended on the page. My bad!
