Hi RS,

You're welcome. That wikipedia article was the top google hit for "goodwill amortization". Not saying you shouldn't have asked, just that there's a ton of good info out there. You might try investopedia.com, too, for definition of terms, and explanations.

But if you really want to sharpen up your (ten year old?) finance chops, put a couple of books on your Christmas list :)
