That's up to you :)

In any question you ask on EE, just click "No, but it is helpful" to any comment you found helpful, and "Yes! This is my solution." on the comment you found most helpful.

Thank you to both.

My thoughts on your answers... I (and most people) get numerous answers back and so when I log back in I usually see 3-4 answers, and not just the first answer.

Owen, I totally agree with you that your answer was in first, and I have nothing wrong with external links, however on the same level I also like the fact that Andrew went to the bother of adding screenshots.

When I logged back in, I quickly scanned the page and answers, and it was Andrew's screenshots that I used to solve my problem, so I didn't need to click on Owen's link. Does that mean Owen was incorrect... no!

Therefore I'm awarding the points equally, even thought I am not sure if technically that is the right thing to do... but it feels right to my situation.

Lastly, thank you to both of you. It is much appreciated.

Thanks. I would have added them had I been on my Mac. That is the problem with trying to answer questions quickly while on a phone or tablet.  There were images at that link as well, so I hoped they would have worked, but I will also take Andrew's comments into consideration and post images when I can (I usually do anyway.)  I appreciate your resolution.
