Thanks very much - that worked first time!

I now have: -


...so with your help I now have the bones of something I can automate.

My only problem is that I don't /really/ understand how it works! 
Clearly, process_spec(step='1') is referring to the index of my 
TinyTable. But the significance of [0] and the way in which 
['form_name'] seems to be "outside" the clause are confusing the hell 
out of me!

Anyone kind enough to clue me in?
