thank you all for the info and you are right @JohnAskew the hardest part is getting started lol. This should be plenty of enough to get me off the ground. I know these programs exist I just needed a project to prove that I not only get the syntax and such but can design and understand how to put everything together and this seemed a good way to do so, while at the same time get good use out of it. Thanks again to all and I will post the program when finished to get your input if anyone is interested.
