Thank you very much, I see from looking at the sql for those 2 tables, I am missing more than the category block line from my admin for sure.
When i look back at my notes and progress from initial install i see I had an error when i first create the database because i did not rename the core index.php with edits before I ran the database creation and had to do it over. This might have been the problem, or I overwrote the table when I imported my old data - more likely this one.
I will run those 2 tables again in phpmyadmin. I am familiar with php on the pages but not so much phpmyadmin, only when I have to use it but I know enough to get by for it. You must for oscommerce
