Hey Mcrider,
I knew this ! I was just wondering if there was another way. There must not be as you are the expert so enjoy the grade and points !

Hey, if you know anything about writing to files, my friend "rockroad" has posted a question. I believe it is locked at the moment and the code didn't work (ain't that it) !
Thanks Again
