Hmm.. thanks for giving me a code sample, but I wonder why it worked 
before, like I say, the procedure works in a program, I just cannot 
remember which ver.  I assume a quick grep for changes to eof() would tell 
me when, and by whom, but I'm not really that interested in when, but why 
it was changed.

Thanks again.
