My message seemed to sit in the ether for a while (8 day delay!). Other 
answers/replies in this thread have answered the problem.

I appreciate it's not showing what is really needed, but it is showing 
what it's linked against which was the original problem.

So, just to be pedantic, the example is not wrong as it highlights 
correctly what the problem is ;)

Anyways, all is in hand now. Thanks for the input on this thread.
