Hi Kathey,

I think you may be right.  As I said, I'm VERY new to Java.  I think it's time to go take a course.  I just looked at the priviledged block stuff and that sounds like it may be the ticket.  Now I'll have to see if I can figure that out.

Thanks for your help.  I'll keep you posted.


Brad
