It's probably something simple.  I think you have to post the code if  
anyone can help.  Most folks don't have the time to recreate a  
solution to illustrate an example.

BTW, the "really simple answer" is different for different people.   
You run the risk of offending someone trying to help, and probably  
can if they are responding.  Just a friendly comment....

Will be on the lookout for the code.  Will try to provide the  
"simplest" answer...
