Hi,

Others have given you good advice on how to do it.

My two Ps worth concerns the stupidity of the users, never under estimate it.

Always check that they have entered the sort of value you require, a number under 256, and deal with anything else.

It may not matter on this little script, but it is good practise to get into.

J.C.
