Dear Katie,

Oh, I see what you mean now.  Yes, that #-based selection works for  
FREQ and not for VOCD.  The trick with VOCD is that the core code  
there was written at Reading and Leonid can only handle changes that  
are relatively external to the core code.  However, it may be possible  
to add this feature.  However, if you use the +t*CHI format, that  
would work directly.
