The title of this thread, just like the "Changing Places" title by David Lodge (old campus comedy some of you will remember) now seems open to the interpretation "that changes itself at will" rather than my original meaning "how to change...)! Thank you nevertheless jazzgirl for your hint: glad to see someone else is not having my problem...
