Simple 301 redirect in ISAPI Rewrite for windows server 2003

Hi Experts,

I hope you can help, I am ttrying to sort out a simple 301 redirecty rule using ISAPI Rewrite... I am  finding it much harder rthan I would have thought. I have tried adapting a number of rules that I have found onlien but no luck.

I am basically just trying to create  permanant 301 redirect from www.mysite.com/sitepage/scrapbook_photo_albums.html
to
www.mysite.com/pcp/scrapbook_photo_albums.html

I think the problem is that I have a rule that already deals with the /sitepage/ folder and may be interupting I have posted my rule list in the hope that someone can help with this!

Thanks!

OK solved this myself ... it was as simple as moving the rule up the list so it was before the other /sitepage/ folder rule. DOH... I thought I had already tried this without success!
