Rob,

InRegionRelative and InRegionAbsolute, as well as inVia, appear to be on the road to
what I need, but I could not find anyhting like that that deals with "Region" when I
was playing around with the Query Helper last night.

It appears that these are part of a much larger "Query Language" that I need to
learn. Is this stuff specifically documented somewhere?

Thanks,

JaMi
