This relatively simple coding did not quite go to plan (no fault of the coder), Eugene responded quickly and kept me informed at all stages. This resulted in the successful completion of the project - and bonus awarded as I appreciate he had to earn this money. Would recommend his services to others, and hope to use him again in the near future. Thanks.
