Peter is right about the copy action during the
postback instead of a regular submit. 

I found a couple of articles on Microsoft's website
about making changes to the registry and changing some
settings. If that works out, I will email the solution
to the list. In the meantime if anyone else has clues,
please do let me know.

I wanted to thank all of you for taking the time to
look into this.

If the doors of perception were cleansed everything
would appear to man as it is, infinite. — William
