Hello Kohei et al,

Thanks again for your kind information!

Yes, I think I'll first give a try the development of the Add-in. If
that works, then great!. In any case I still have lots to read and
learn. As I said before, I'm very basic at programming and well, it
will take some time -I guess- until I get this add-in to work well
with Calc.

Nevertheless, I hope I can come back to you for any help if needed ... :-)

Many thanks again and BR,
