Thanks John!

Nice to hear things are working OK at least at first pass.  The WIDE121213
concept was a nice one, so was a really easy sell when I was asked to
support it.

I have loaded 1.16.1 and its working well.  Using Wide121213 and the report
is getting thru as well as when it was wide 2-2.

I see you updated a couple of things but have not verified them particularly
the BP measurement.

Thanks again for all your help
