Ok Mark very nice of you to help Craig. He does not claim to be an expert 
in "awk" or even competent ---> Which is obviously why he is asking for 
help in the first place. No need for the sarcasm and to belittle the 
poster. Remember lots of people looking for help will be directed to this 
answer and your help could be much appreciated....
