    Rocks, thanks again.

    Have diconnected the card, noted all the wires down. Will take it to work tomorrow and give Tony at EMW a call.

    Hopefully he will have one in stock for me. You have been a real help, many many thanks - may have saved me a few quid as well.

    Cheers Rocks, you a real gem mate..
