Thanks for this. This looks like the answer. Just my lack of understanding.

I think I was mid-way through changing things over. I was using a previous 
example (of mine) to create a new form. It's all now working apart from the 
setvalue. i spent a lot of time last night experimenting so it may be a bit 
cobbled after that.

Style- not one of my best skills. I'll take a look at this, thanks a lot. 
Actually I may have done this just for this *ahem* example to close it off 
neatly so you can see the start and end.
