Thank you so much for such a detailed response, i really appreciate it..
Unfortunately though, I'm on the verge of giving up on this after spending considerably more time than i anticipated it would need. Frankly, I've made a mess of it and would want to start over but can't find it in me to do so. For those who were hoping this would fabricate, i apologise for my lack of persistence. I have a lot on my plate at the moment.
