dear will, it took long because only yesterday i needed to check on something and, by chance (if i may say), i came over this page - not because i've been thinking about the answer since september :))))the shortcut is the following: select FROM a list / select FROM AMONG a larger number of things/persons etc.you made quite a research on this matter, as i can see :) however, the cambridge definition at the end of your reply makes it clear for everyone, i think :)
