    The Virus that came from China.

    Carefully chosen words. Those who want to follow his line that it was made by China will still hear "made in china". His speech team is hoping that his detractors will be weakened by those hearing his admission that it wasn't made in China but just came from there.

    Form to handle duplicates

    That got it solved - it was actually a problem of referencing the box on the form. Just adding the me.DOB to the code and your method sorted the issue. Thank you!
