Thanks BC.
Major issues.
It won't let me run anything and the downloads don't appear in the folders I save them to.
Will have to take it into my "guy" on Monday. Not looking good.
I did take a snap shot of the window in OneNote to show you, but won't paste into this function.
Thanks anyway. By the way, I think I picked it up off one of the Canadian University websites when I was doing a practice exam.
All the best.
