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.
