I've edited your posting to fix the formatting of the CreatePDFFile routine by using the copy that you emailed me. Unfortunately, FrontPage's discussion facility does not preserve formatting of newlines and white space. It may be possible to get around this by feeding it HTML, but I haven't yet had chance to experiment with this. If you prepare the message in a text editor and paste it into the posting form's Comments field, this seems to do a better job of preserving formatting.  Sending me email for such situations, as you did, is just fine.

I removed your redundant posting. I'm not sure if that was from your deliberate attempt to fix the formatting or was an accident due to double-clicking or refreshing the Confirmation form. To post a message or reply you click only once on the Post button. Also be careful not to use a browser refresh when you see the Confirmation page. As I recall this can lead to a redundant posting.

Another general point: when you post a piece of code or other material written by someone else, please include a reference to the source, e.g. a URL or citation to the publication from which it originated. We don't want to be violating someone's copyright or committing some other offense. When an existing web page is available, it would be preferable to point to its URL rather than copy the text into a forum message, unless it's a small excerpt, properly attributed.

I'll post separate messages to reply to the VFP-specific issues you mentioned.
