That's exactly the part that I cannot find an answer to Alan, that's why 
I posted here to see if anyone has anything related to this. That's all 
the help I will be needing from you , Thank you for your time.

I do admit, I could not make it clear enough for you to understand, but 
no worries, I gave it a shot anyways. Once again, I do thank you for 
your time Alan. If there is someone else besides Alan out there who is 
trying to achieve the same thing, I would love to hear from them. Thank 
you all and thank you Alan.
