Right on BOB you got the rythme of the beat!  i wrote "by reporting 
it the old way or by adding a summary of 
expenses vs revenues elsewhere probably in the annual report."

That's where this thread start.  Again "by reporting it the old

Not meaning anyone is old here...just in case and to avoid any
