Just above each post there's a line of icons. The one on the right, a bit like a set of speach marks, is "reply with quote". It'll open a reply window with the whole of the post quoted with the 'Originally posted by:' bit and bold. If quoting anything lengthy it's better if you delete anything you're not specifically responding to.

Don't cling to a mistake just because you spent a lot of time making it.

Hey, wow! Thanks, Alan Cresswell! [Smile]

Really appreciate your answer to my problem, as I was reading through the thread "Answers to questions you didn't need to know", in the hope of posting my question at the end. (Thought I'd better read the thread first!) But there's 15 pages in that thread, and after reading for a while I was only up to page 3...LOL. So I thought it'd be ages before I could find out!

Gonna try and quote myself again now...
