Thank you Alan.  That worked.  I didn't forget it; I never knew it.  I'm
starting to run into the area where the Wiki isn't enough, but I don't know
enough TeX to read the Context source for the macros.  What is recommended to
get up to speed on Context?  Should I go back and re-read Knuth's book on TeX
then try reading ConTeXt source?  Last time I read it was 20 years ago, and
only got half way through; that was enough for my needs back then.  I guess a
week or two reading everything on this page would help too:


Now just need an answer for the blank page issue and I can start shipping these
spreadsheets to clients.
