Thank you Larry,
The reason I ask is, if it follows the documentation in the manual then
why would you need the next or branch fields? Since it is set that the
branch will use the next even number and to rebuild uses the algorithm
you told me the other day (follow head to the branch point then follow
out the branch).

And you have all this information in the requested num?  Am I being over
zealous here?
