Could be, but I have no way of easily knowing. In any case, I was trying 
to write a simple report that could be printed with titles at the top of 
each page. If there's another "common" format that I can write in to 
produce the file, that's fine. It may be this is so difficult to be 
impossible. Long, long ago this was no problem. :-)

I suppose I could copy the txt file into wordpad, and print it there.
