Hi Mark,

Thanks for the info!

I am working on a communications program and was transferring files.
When I transfer a stack that I read as a binary that has been placed in
a field after I read it, the transfer has a problem.  Immediately it  
the message box saying it is having trouble writing the file.  Then on
the receiving machine it receives only about 1/2 of the text sent.

I was thinking this might have to do with the wrong type of character
being sent so I thought this might put it in a form that would not cause
problems being sent to the driver.
