Hi Carl,

I'm glad that helped.

For the new question:

   C-h f org-time-stamp

should sort you out.

Two other things:

1) Please reply to the list by default, not to me personally. (`Reply 
to All' should be an option in your mail client.)

2) Unless someone leaps into to tell me that I'm wrong about the 
emacs-orgmode list culture, please don't top post.
