Thank you Chrise, Rossim and Sudo. I'll wait t see ifanyone else has found a pattern of number and letters. I'll telephone Hodder Educaton on Monday or Tuesday. It would seem they've taken over Chambers from Harrap. We'll see.

Re the missing letters. Methinks I'll start another thread to Norah. It only happens on the new-format site.

Each copy must have an individual code .

I don't think giving you my code will help, because I presume it links to a copy on the CD. I would be unwilling to do so anyway.

Every single 0 on my copy has a strike through which must be a Zero.

I agree the code is very poor quality. I'm almost blind in one eye, and long sighted in th other, so I'm permantly reaching for the magnifying glass.

PS Those missing letters when you type are VERY annoying.

I'm sure with perseverance you will get there. I've had to reinstall my copy a couple of times, and its worked.

Actually, if you can provide an email address, I'm willing to send you my code to see if works.

Thanks a mllion GWA. As you can see from my original post, I have my own unique registration number. Thanks for the offer but we're warned not to put emai addess up for general access. I'm sure, yours would not work with my CD anyway.

As there are NO crossed O's on my package, I've no idea where the capital o or zero appears. I also cannot distinguish between 1 and capital i

I'd be VEY gradeful if you could spare a minute to list where the numbers and letters appear on yours using L = letter and N = number. I'll then try with mine.

eg. my reg no. CHDO-070I-00IC-V36U
I've (among many others) tried LLLN-NNNN-NNNL-NNL. The last group is obvious, of course This, and others, have failed.

Thanking you in anticipaion

PS. I've had to go back throgh (the missing "u") this post to add about 8 missing letters) I wonder if Norah knows?

Thank you GWA. I see MY last group is LNNL while yours is NLNL. I'm late for an appointment now, so I'll try using your kindly supplied pattern tommrrow to try to sort out my o/O problem. If it works, I'll post a further reply. I'm very grateful. Thank's again. John

Well GWA! I can't thank you enough. A short while ago I tried following your letter/number format (using my own last group). I was delighted when the input code was accepted first try. The installation went ahead without a hitch.

Once again, than you for your kindness

John.

PS. The "missing letter" problem seems worse today. I had to make four additions to the above. I don't want to intall Google Chrome but may hjave to. It's funny the 'missing letter (an space)' problem only appears on this site.

The quik browm fox jmped over the lazydog.

FAR WORSE today!
