"Don't ever take a fence down until you know the reason it was put up. " G. K. Chesterton
I agree and I am normally very hesitant about deleting or replacing someone elses code. I will sit with it and try and work out why it has been done a certain way and what I am missing, sometimes I will ask for a second opinion. I always have a backup so that reversion is no problem. In this instance though both subs were doing no more than I said and both were more comments than code.
Do not seek to follow in the footsteps of the wise. Seek what they sought. -Basho
