Hi Jo - thanks for the heads up! How odd. It seems fine here, but I have tweaked sth that may affect some users. Let me know if that sorts it out and if not, could you tell me which internet browser and version number you're using? Thanks ever so much! R

Hi there- just used it once and it worked but then tried again via Google and it didn't - it might be me. I use IE but not sure which version... Best, Jo
