But I have seen it fall thru the top to the others.
It happens sometimes.
For me, I wrote the code for it at the time, left it in, it has run since then
(beyond the first case), I don't recall the exact reasons, I have guesses, but
don't care much at the moment <grin>. 'program-it-and-forget-about-it' here.
I often program for a complete solution, and it is easy enough for me to leave
Glad it may have helped some!
