Thanks for the tip, Arne, that looks exactly like what I need.

Thanks, Nick - you confirmed what I suspected, and it is usefule for me to
know how to check on the version compability. W r. t. the lack of a newer
license, I am afraid my bargaining power with the statistic agency is
rather low.

Thanks again and best wishes,
Kristin
