Thank you Les for not killing me off like some of the other people who have
been trying to help.

As a response to others, YES, I should have read the man but I might have
posed the question all the same.  Sometimes my eyes glaze over after about
he 3rd sentence when trying to make sense of them.

I turned on nmb and that solved my problem.

Sometimes my life serves as a warning to others and now all they have to do
is read my posts and learn from my mistakes.

Thanks for your patience!!!!
