Sometimes I really wonder why should I bother, when OP clearly does not even bother to follow simple instructions.

I don't "hate". I was just a bit frustrated because for once there was a question where a perfect answer was possible (sorry if it sounds bragging ), and it seemed you did not follow those instructions from HP.

Only things I hate are federal tax authorities in Finland and Germany, haggis and six witches...
