Sorry for not mention the error. I thought that the error message is clear, due to my description. The error message is, that a variable is not found. This is due to the fact, that I don't have every variable for every year. Which is the reason why I need a loop like the one Steven posted. But which shows respect to the fact, that some variables are missing. (concerning the year). Hope this was explanation enough. 2008/11/19 Friedrich Huebler <fhuebler@gmail.com>: > Daniel, > > First, you don't say which error you encounter.
