Hello pmsguy,

It would be useful to see some sample data.  EE now allows you to directly upload
files to your question.

Please be advised that once you upload a file, it can be publicly accessed, and that it
may not be possible to fully and permanently delete it.  Therefore, be very careful about
posting proprietary, confidential, or other sensitive information.  If necessary, use "fake"
and/or obfuscated data in your sample.

Regards,

Patrick
