Just a thought, but might not be a bad idea to rank performance, and then lines up the weeks to show how they have performed overall. Just something to make it comparable.

Thanks for the idea Rich. I just so happen to have received an email from another reader on this same topic this morning.
So we will get busy with this.
Thanks as always.
