Thanks for the help,

The student isn't in again until the end of the week however I'm sure my little typo is the cause of the problem.

I always find it interesting how, in my career, I've sat on the boundary between computer science, chemistry and physics, only really knowing enough or finding out enough of each to get the specific experiment done that I am working on at the time. I suppose if I were a programer making a mistake in a script like I have it would be unforgivable, but as a scientist I don't mind looking foolish so long as the damn thing works and I get to analyse my structure (or at least my student does)! As I can't be an expert in all areas, I really appreciate the help from those of you who write and maintain all the software and have an eye for the detail in lines of text scripts!
