Thanks Michael, and yes it certainly helps.

This looks like a pretty good solution.  I don't recall ever having played
with Netlist manager before.  Just been in to try it out and sure enough
this does the job.  I might just do something quite outrageous and read the
manual to find out what else this utility might be useful for.

Thanks again,
Jim Parr
