Maarten- thanks for the explanation.  However, my question was not the
input command- as you said I got that part, my real question was and I
quote" But note the difference that the -float()- function does make to
the result
here (we do not have your data, hence the example):"  I did not see the
result he was pointing out, that was the question not his input command.

Thanks for your help.
