I've got all the appropriate modules, that I'm aware of...  It just 
doesn't show the Strong's References.  I'll have to see about a help 
site for this.


I've discovered the arrow left for the column at left...  I always play 
with the buttons and  such when I get a new program, so I can find out 
what it does.  :)


Thanks so much for your time.


Joseph
