Hi Paul,

I suggest that you should send us commented, minimal, self-contained, reproducible code.

That means, in essence, developing the simplest possible representation of your problem. In the process of developing the simplest possible representation, you may learn more about the problem. Maybe even solve it.

Even if you don't, then you enable us to make a much better contribution, because we can actually try out our suggestions before sending them.

With what you sent here, all we can do is speculate.

Cheers,

Andrew
