Thanks to everybody for solutions. The one from
Shannon and Nick was most efficient. One last issue,
though, is that a value is assigned even when the
original string variable is missing. Fixed this with a
regular old _for_. Or is there a more elegant
solution? Forgot to mention, I'm still using version 7
but all y'all seem to have figured that out.

Kate
