when i said post your code here, did actual mean you used the format instructions i provided earlier. Anyway, your first link, your closing tag is a bit off, the slash is at the wrong place.

Sure you copied your code correctly to the forum? it looks a bit double

It ran finally!The closing tag of was in the incorrect position.I was so punch drunk tired from looking at it that everything you were telling me was just sitting at the entrance of my ear lol! Thanks for the tip on how to format in the forum ( even though I didn't do that either. I'm new at all of this so don't sue me smile).I printed it out to put with my notes for future questions.I have been looking at your answers to other questions and they're always concise and makes it easier to think this through.So once again, thanks for your assistance and pushing . Have a great day!!
