      Thanks. Don't know what happens (other than third time's a charm)
      I went back and downloaded it and it looks fine.
      I notice that when I unzipped the files, the first two times created the folder lahman55, the latest, admindDB, so I presume that I somehow went to the wrong place.

      One small error in the FieldingOF.txt file:
      "geisem01",1882,1,0,3,2
      should be
      "geissem01",1882,1,0,3,2
      (There is no geisem01 in the master file)

      Thanks for the update!

      John,

      I don't think you have the correct files. I downloaded them just now and
      the bench line shows the SB and CS and the composite line is there.
