Thanks a million, Pete.  That does help very much and I apologize for
taking the group's time.

But when I saw a reference to the filtering of a pattern, I just wanted to

most correct fashion -- but of course from lack of familiarity I was not on
the correct topic.

Thanks again & all the best to everyone.
