Thank you Karl, after a minute or two, or three ;-) I had it working,
but I had to change in the first line !isset to empty. For some reason
it wasn't working with !isset. and I had to
change: .$row[$i]['errorcode']. to .$row['errorcode']. because it wasn't
allowing for more than 1 digit in the error code number, but it was
displaying the correct error definition
 .$row[$i]['definition']. to .$row['definition']. had to be changed
because it was displaying the error code and not the definition.

Now the only problem I've got to figure out is altering it so it doesn't
exclude row[0].
