Re: Problem with deleteing files

Karl,

Indeed I did, and at the time I didn't have the full information that was
asked.
As it was a long time agai, I thought I'd re-ask the question, WITH the
complete information.

I must say, I am TOTALLY dismayed at the complete lack of help, and
overwhelmed by the amount of 'winging' about correct 'ettiquette' for
threading.

I would appreciate some help with this soloution, if you CANNOT help, then
please please, don't winge and complain about my posts.

Paul
