Mmmmmmm....I guess we need to look at this - I will try it later.
But I am glad you figured a way around the trouble.

I don't think there are any membership numbers that are less
than 4 digits (are there?) I think it is very clear what 
is a member number and what is a power.  I was going to 
ask Tree about allowing for a 1w or 5w entry as it 
would look better in the log.
