Rearrange Column Headings in Where Used Record Link plugin

I would like to move the Where within Source column leftwards. I tried copying the Plugin and renaming before amending the code but when I tried to install the amended Plugin it got the message already installed.

Re: Name Problems

Use IsNull()
Eg
while ptrWork:IsNull() do
code
End

Null is a special value comparison to which always produces Null. It's not 0, nil, or an empty string.

Re: Alternative Surnames

This looks like a useful technique for handling people in the 1939 Register who are part of a household but whose records are redacted. Naming them as /[head of household surname]/ helps to identify where they belong. (They are also associated by the Method 1 source citation created by AS.)
