Daniel - you misunderstood what I meant here - I meant that I (me personally) didn't have time to start digging i.e. researching further based on the comments made by Howard. This all started because I did not like the tone that was taken with me at the very beginning. Believe me, I fully appreciate the time that people spend helping me, as many times I find this help invaluable. I fully acknowledge that nobody has to do anything to help me in the slightest. This is why I generally use this ng as a last resort after I have looked at the documentation and at metalink. I meant no offence to anybody and you certainly took what I meant out of context. In fact if I had meant that Howard should be doing the digging then to be honest I would have expected a far harsher response! If you look at my original post I was merely asking for pointers to sites/books to aid me, this is generally how I work as otherwise you never learn anything!

How about getting back on to what the topic has now become - the file size discussion?
You took what I wrote completely differently to how it was meant - next time I will try to be clearer!
