Art, I had a similar wish but only to find out (via Mark's usual help) that it is not possible (at least not for the moment). So what I did was to defined a frame, where I used the upper part of the frame as header area and the lower part for the list view. The result looks similar to a list view with headers but the limitation is that you can't scroll sideways, change the column order, or resize the columns. But with some fiddling I managed to get the header area to resize correctly in a resizeable window, and this fulfilled my requirement.

Gee Mark, I think this is the first time you couldn't come through for
me !!  Thanks anyway - what I have works (for now...).
