Thanks, Geoff.  I'm going to give it a shot over the next few days and see
if I can get started.  It's definitely going to be a challenge for me.  I
hope to come up with something I can use after I scratch my head a few

I appreciate both of your prompt responses!  I may have (probably will
have) a few more questions as I get further down the road.
