Ruthie, Thankyou for your information and appreciate your time to reply but still experiencing problems. 1.I duplicated my project using the procedure on page 284 of the Manual - no change. 2.Then I tried the FIXME.BAT procedure - no change. 3.Tried reinstalling the program (not full installation) - but still the problem persists! Is it possible to identify the offending missing or invalid file? Any suggestions at this point would be appreciated.
