Thank you.

I thought perhaps I had done something a few years ago in that file, but I couldn't see a correlation with any of its lines and a recent run. Now that I know that is the place, I can work out my needs.

I had seen the section of code for 160+ digit composites. I almost altered it before noticing it was for that size and above.

Thanks for all.
