That should have been, "user-defined," and I meant that the format was of length greater than 16, which has nothing to do with the length of the variable.

That is, the issue if I understood the question correctly had nothing to do with either the variable type or length, but the lengths of the values used in the format. -- --(Signature) Robert M.
