    You're very welcome mm. It might be a good idea to send me a copy of the workbook if you run into any problems, as then we'd both be working with the same data for debugging. As long as you're happy with that.

    I'm not totally convinced it'll work if you don't name the ranges, but as I'm not totally convinced I fully understand it either, lol, it's probably a good idea to test things out by playing around with it. Anyway, let me know how you get on.  : )

    YouTube Adverts
    I haven't noticed anyone posting about this, but seeing as how it happened to me I thought I'd mention it to help anyone who has the same problem.

    For a couple of weeks I'd been having to put up with adverts playing, before the video I wanted to see, that were unskippable and lasted a minute or longer. I know that isn't a huge amount of time, but some videos I watch are only a few minutes long, so having to sit through an ad of that duration before my chosen video came up, was bit of a pain.

    Apparently, the reason this was happening was because I had my ad block application running whilst on YouTube. After I configured it to not run whilst on the site, the adverts still played, but I could skip them after five seconds to get to the video I wanted, which is much better.

    Thanks for your time.  : )

    13th June 2020 EDIT : Found a little browser extension which, amongst other things, removes the adverts altogether. Enhancer For Youtube

    Scott, do u know something about ShoutBox, free typing chat (shoutbox.com)?

    Is it possible to set it as indepenent window (custom size)  and pin it as Top window (over all other windows) ?

    I've not heard of ShoutBox before Rogg, but I've just had a look at their website and it looks as though you can customize it, just how much I'm not sure. But it may be possible to keep it above other windows and change the size of it if the CSS is accessible.

    It would be nice to know more about it. Some of my friends use Skype chat or Chatzy, but Shoutbox looks very good too. Having conntact to the other guys durring the game (on gameclient ) is great option.

    My IT knowledge is v limitted, thats why i was asking you. Shoutbox looks like an script that someone can add to his web page. So, you can lock the page where u have chat box, by password (only CC mates can go in and use the chat) . other thing was to make it as separeted window and pin it at the top.

    I dont know if some wgt CCs use it already.

    This might be theme for an other topic, maybe

    Hmm, I'm not sure about having more chats going on in the game as well as the normal chat window, I get confused enough as it is, lol. Okay if you're young and quick I suppose.  : )
