Excellent, I've been making tons of progress!  Now I'm wondering if there's a way to retrieve a single column from a [#many] object...?  I have been trying a for++ loop to iterate through the rows of a specified column but it's not working very well and I can only do that via a [#store] object...

Thanks so much!!
