Bonjour Stewart, Êtes is used when the subject is vous or a combination of words that equal vous: ma femme et toi (my wife and you = you) = vous. Sommes is used when the subject is nous or a combination of words that equal nous: toi et moi (you and I = we) = nous.

Thank you ... problem solved! Stewart
