You were exactly right.  Thank you!  (I'm horrible with pointers and dereferencing and such.)


Funny enough, I fixed that and on one structure it worked but another it didn't.  Couldn't figure it out for a while, until I looked at how I defined the structs.  The IDs were alls... chars.  :blink:  It's a fluke one worked at all.  Switched them to ints and now it works as expected.  Pumped to get some coding done tomorrow.  Thanks again!

That's pretty incredible.  I was around for a few older versions of the site.  Lots of good and helpful people through the years.  And yeah, where has the time gone?  What the hell, time?  Where'd you go?
