Hi all,

Cindy, it's really quite simple, if you write in *Guin in the search field, the 
computer will return all entries with all possible letters before the string 
'guin'.  this would be Le of course.  You can use this feature in your own 
search facility on your computer.  If you go to the start menu and choose 
search and type in Book*.doc  You will get files named bookshare.doc 
bookreader.doc booklists.doc booky.doc (I don't think you have a booky, but who 
knows?) <grinning>  If you type in   racing* you might get a file named 
racing-form.doc.  <giggling helplessly.   Hmmmm, maybe that's more Judy S.'s 
thing?   You gotta forgive me, folks.  I've been drowning in email this 
morning.  I was babysitting a plumber most of yesterday, and I just got 
horribly behind, like some three hundred messages!

 Anyway, you get the idea.   It's a standard computer thing,  It also works in 
google searches.
