   Thanks for your assistance! As Richard has stated, the request is not 
the intended functionality of the software, and therefore we are 
currently exploring alternative solutions before determining which 
software to integrate into the office. At the end of the day, management 
determines which software we are going to incorporate. If this is what 
they want, then at least we know it can be done without breaking 
dependencies! You have been a great help. Technical support is 
phenomenal, I cannot thank you enough! Saved me a lot of time!
