Thanks, Kevin. But does this mean that the munge_quantity code has been 
fixed and approved? It was at one time causing too many problems and 
Mike said it was put in against his "advice and will" and that it would 
be removed from future versions (this was back in 2001).

 From your reply to my question, it now seems that IC 5 depends upon 
munge_quantity in order to add select items from a single page listing. 
Before I go an toss the munge_quantity stuff back into my page, I'd like 
to make sure that it won't be causing any problems.
