    Hey Jan, gotta love the MS Word for windows "macro virus" don't ya. I use VBA for lots of suff in Access, Excel, and even Outlook, but I'll be d@mned if I can find a good reason for it to be in Word. All it is is a virus manufacturing center built into the world's most common text editor. Man, I could write some nasty sh!t in there in I was so inclined.
