Hi,

Another thought ... have you tried to export into csv or txt format yet?

If that works, your worksDB might contain invalid characters, invalid formulas, or a formatting option that is not accepted by msword!


Best regards, Raisor

Thanks for the help!!  I kept the website in my FAVORITES for future reference.  What I found out is that you cannot export or SAVE AS a WORKS database file without losing some of the format.  I had to do it via using our FULL version of Adobe Acrobat and Distiller.  What a hassle.....

Thanks though.
