Hi,
Thanks. I'll do that and report back, I don't expect it'll be a quick process.
One thing how do i determine results of these updates? I know the
packages sometimes put messages to the screen, only the last of which
i can get at, if a package way up puts one onscreen i miss it. I've
tried a script command to try to capture but the output is
compilations.
Thanks.
Dave.
