Bill! It worked! Thanks so much. I'm very pleased. It's exactly what  
I needed. I needed a list of the Smart Folder which is a list of  
newly loaded books so I can change the date of the smart folder, burn  
the backup folder to disc and not lose the information. Now when my  
friend asks me what's new since she was here I can pull out the  
printed copy of the backup folder.
Thanks again.
