Right you are!
Word 1 of "the name" or "the long name" tells you what the control
type is. I ran into the problem you mention just yesterday when I
found I had a FIELD named "graphic data". Needless to say, the
converter choked on this.
We all owe Alejandro a big debt of gratitude for this utility.
Finally we can export graphic objects out of RR--this was the
facility I missed most from SuperCard.
If we had a list of the "Run Rev Utility Contributor of the Year"
award, I would nominate Al for consideration. I'm sure the list of
nominees would be long, since we all have such different needs.
