    TQ.. If that's supposed to be 'Thank you', it's unnecessary. Just click on 'Thank' in the bottom left hand corner of any reply which you find helpful.
    You have probably noticed that I've changed your thread title, and included your question in the body of your text. You'll soon get used to doing this.

    Now try clicking Thank.
