Terry, Thanks for the really useful help. This forum is for helping people, not bashing them. How do you even know what we're up to? If you're pushing your add-on maybe you should make a nice sales pitch instead of just making people feel like idiots.
I'm not bashing anybody, unless you are a Microsoft employee in charge of Windows OLE you have no reason to be offended. Also note my reply was to the original poster (who adequatedly explained what they are up to), not you.
