  ObjecstTotal (2)
Specifically, I have 5079 Objects and ObjectTotal=4988, so it does not see a lot of them. My objects are named as numbers in sequential order. i.e 1, 2, 3, 4...etc are each converted to string and used as the name for each object. So its really easy to tell what I can not access. Above 5033...
