Didn't Richard Mayes answer this same question from you last month?
In my experience, Richard's answer was spot on for V K edge data.
If Richard's good advice didn't help, then you need to be more
explicit about what the problem is, perhaps by posting a small athena
project file that demonstrates the problem.
