    Please post code with proper indentations. Statements should not all start in the first column.

    Also add some comments to the code that document what it is trying to do and how it is going to do it.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    And please don't remove your code this time. It makes the thread hard to follow for future readers.

    Regards,

    Second time the OP has removed code. This time a small section was left. I'm on the verge of banning the OP for a while.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
