Thanks Old Pendant. The condescation is a bit unnecessary as I'm FREQUENTLY in your position where I get frustrated that people don't do their research.
This is one of the first times I've literally WROTE my code instead of just modifying existing snippets, but I appreciate your support with helping me understand the concept.
I assure you, a debugger is definitely my next step. This is a project I'm doing with a timeline and although I have it working (although very sloppy and not properly coded) I'm simply trying to expand my grasp on the concept.
In any event, any replies, even if they are advice on tools to use are greatly appreciated.
I'll take all of the feedback here and figure it out on Monday and post any results I get. Thanks for all of the support!
