    How did you make the table, Maurits ?


    Since you ask... Smiley
    I initially made it in Excel.  I typed in the formulas with a leading ' which made Excel display them literally.  I used Excel's "border" tool to make the border.

    Then I opened up a new message in Outlook 2000.  I set the mail format to HTML, and copy/pasted from Excel to the mail message.

    Then I right-clicked the message and "View Source"d.

    Then I copied the HTML from <table> to </table>.

    Then I went to Channel 9, replied to your post, and switched to the "HTML" tab in the FreeTextBox editor.

    Finally I pasted the HTML I had copied.

    (yuck!)

    To post images... first I got a free Geocities account (www.geocities.com)
    I save the image in gif or jpg format and upload it to my account
    Then I open the image at the geocities URL in another browser window
    Finally I drag and drop the image into the FreeTextBox editor.

    To transfer files, you could .zip the file up and post it on your Geocities account.  Then you could post a link in your comment.

    Finally... to add more stops, you could add more columns.  The formulae get a little more complicated, but ten stops shouldn't be impossibly difficult.
