OK, Richard, youve sold it. Ill take a look at VB.NET when I get the time.

We may not be expert programmers, but from where such people stand, I dare say that we do appear as experts in the engineering support and maintenance of medical equipment. Thats why the solutions of us maintainers are superior!

Remember what we get from the "experts"? Centi-hours, weird data fields that the user is forced to use (or work around), and nonsense like that. No Mate, the enthusiastic amateur beats the so-called professional any day, in my book at least.

But, to avoid repeating myself yet again, Ive said it all before at the Re: Philips Optim thread on 27-Jan-07. smile

If you don't inspect ... don't expect.
