Ah, yes you're probably right, I as thinking that a period was being
entered, but its far more likely that 1/2/3/4/5 will have been entered
for each field, and in some instances this will never have been
entered.

I was distracted by the comment that a '.' (period) was entered for missing.

Apologies,

Neil
