One suggestion - on the confluence page where you document this - you might
want to expose the attachment so it is easy to locate. Unless someone is
familiar with confluence, they won't know to look in the Tools menu to find
the attachment which is the code. I'd do it, but then my userid/name will
modify your doc and I don't want to do anything to give the appearance I had
anything to do with this fine piece of work. I don't get to do such nice
work anymore.

Well done!
