I'm a little confused, Albert :hmz: My new total should be 415 ... or are you indicating that when you write 409 (+6)??? I don't follow these lists religiously, so I am very confused by the way this is listed ... :wall: Does my total then appear as 415 on the next month's list??? Definitely confusing to me! Could you please clarify that my new total IS 415 ... and perhaps 'explain' this updating system ....

Yes arks, indeed 415. In too much of a hurry this a.m (heading to a conference and wanted to finish stuff before I left).
Will correct forthwith.....
