Thanks Craig. I tried this and saw no change to what was displayed.

Nice - I had never used PrintKeys before. What I see is this: While my 
undisplayed column data is consistently included in the PrintKeys 
output, there are other columns that are included only under certain 
circumstances. I suppose I should make my data always have the same 
number of columns per record - seems like I remember something about 
that being an issue in the past but I could be wrong. Will give it a try 

Thanks guys -
