Bloody thing - lesson - always check the data and don't assume stuff!!

Came down to the browser plugins are a bit clever than I assumed (I 
assumed they wern't because they were rendering a datestamp as a phone 
as well as other numerical data.)
Turns out tho, they ARE picky enough to not link an incorrect mobile 
number - eg with one digit to long ...
and being stupid i was viewing one record (with correct no) in FF, and 
an incorrect one in Chrome/IE   -- der

thanks for helping with my timewaste... wish it was billable lol
