        Hi thanks for your help. The problem that I have is that this is above my head. I wrote the programs I use a few years back when it was easy to install and I don't really want to go backwards and install all of this over again.

        I created a new file called what you suggested and put in the contents like you said and then ran this and this is what I got.

        Could you please give me more defined steps so that I can get this accomplished. I would be in your debt.
