Hi All,

ED, I had looked up the help file before I posted the question and I did
exactly as it said.I was ignoring a very minor detail for headings but
sorted it out. With regards to graphics it was all set up right, but the way
I tested it to make sure it was working was wrong. I know silly me, my
brains were switched off.

Anyways thank you all for your feedback.

Have a great day!
