My thanks to everyone who responded. Thanks to you
pointers I was able to solve that problem. I wound up
using a WHILE loop instead of doing a count.

Now my problem is that when I run the automation, it
breaks on code fields that are now revealed to be
malformed and which need to be rewritten and
retested... :-( Dealing with VBA is like fighting
the Hydra. I don't need any help with it, just more
hours than are available.

I'm getting to the point where I'd welcome a return to
an actual *writing* job. I think I'm going to start
calling myself a document programmer instead.
