    Hi westberge and welcome to the forum.

    There is a sticky you should read at the top of the forum titled: This Forum is for Saying Hi, not for Asking Technical Questions (READ BEFORE POSTING)

    There is another thread you should read containing other important information including the use of code tags when posting code. It is Announcements - What's Wrong With My Code?. Please read that also, and fix the code in your post.

    Please try to relax with the all caps title, and the NOW stuff. It honestly doesn't matter what you type, the movie is over when it is over, and people check the forum when they get around to it. Such is life. However most people see a title like that and ignore it on purpose.
