Hi John:

Yes I know I can do that (and probably will for now) but it not quite
as simple as adding 2 new files. All the work schedules do not coincide
with each other which means I will probably be adding 4 or more files
to the mix and more crontab entries as well. When you consider adding
more people or having them change shifts for some reason it gets even 
worse. The more complex the setup the less flexible and the more likely
there will be errors.

I really thought there might be soemthing out there like what I need.

Thanks for your input.

Regards, Hugh
