Thanks Guys for responding, sorry it took me soooo very long to get back to you, but I have been crazy busy.

Angel your solution did not work, I had errors, I put them aside to provide feedback but can't remember where I put them.
Divyeshdoshi, your solution worked like a charm.
Openshac, I just saw your solution so I'll have to pass on it. I am pretty sure that this solution requires a subquery.

Thanx again,
