  • Jim,
    This is cool. So used to Excel just being a ‘numbers’ app and not for text.
    Thanks for the tip, Jim.

    • Hi Mike,
      Thanks for the comment and the kind words.
      And yes, it is cool… I’m probably only ever using 1% of what Excel can do. Well… maybe 2% after today! 🙂
      Cheers and thanks again,
