Thank you Alexey,
Please
Can you suggest some commands to try out-Im not experianced enough to go
and find the problem at the command line--if you can give me some to try
out,I will learn quickly--I have been doing VB Client server programs as a
job-mostly screen scraping and have been fortunate enough to get a model
200 for home use to learn on

cheers Dave
