    Welcome to the forum.

    Please ask different questions in separate threads and please don't use so many different colours. Some of them are very difficult to see on the screen.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Thank you. Please remember to capitalise "I" at all times, start every sentence with a capital letter, and that "OK" is always written in capital letters.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
