I dunno...getting so caught in a single approach that you don't consider a
better way? ;-) The proverbial "can't see the forest for the trees"...
Thanks for the great code. Now...

I get this error when I run these lines:
ERROR: Physical file does not exist, C:\Documents and Settings\sbass\dummy.

Getting close :-)
