Thanks Michael. Not that I think I really understand!!
I my terms, I think you would be suggesting to try out those alternatives if all else fails?

There are a few other similar type things in the dropdowns that do not seem to be "detailed" in the Help.
Maybe some others may want to point them out.(If/when I know more I might better detail the questions!)
