If you are comfortable with macros or have a programming background or just
feel up to a challenge. Raynald's website has an excellent macro and fully
commented in addressing your question. If you need further help just send me
an e-mail and Ill help you get started.
USE VERSION 2 (it probably will be your quickest way)-Version 3 is ideal but
may require more effort.
