Hi Ken:  I have tried that, same result.  I thought there should be 3.  I looked at the source aliases in my old computer, copied the path for the first one, clicked, same result.  Something is not kosher, because I have never seen the "also lookup " field taken away simply by closing dB.  Perhaps I will try a reinstall Monday.  Many thanks for the CB......Bob
