I can't post the Accounts page...I won't. The red flags look like a string of red Christmas tree lights!

I saw your message on Forums Feedback and posted the blow-by-blow how-to's. I'm certain that there's a more streamlined way to do it, but my aged brain followed bman's pm'd instructions, and this is what I came up with, and it's all I know! LOL
I hear you on the Christmas lights. I used to call my J.Crew account over on TrueCredit my Christmas account because of all the yellows and oranges and reds (well, one orange and one red) scattered among the greenery!
