Glad to hear that TimothyT. When I produced the first file, the compression software (Winzip) slipped a couple of bytes and caused the problem. I had to do a series of tests called "CRC Checks" to find the error. CRC stands for Cyclic Redundancy Check and is also known as "Check Sums" and "CRC Check Sums" . Basically, it uses a formula of sorts to add up the characters and spaces (all the Bytes) in a program or file and give a base 16 (hexadecimal) total. It's a great tool that allows you to make sure that no one modifies a file.

Hey, that's enough technical FYI.
