Thank you. My intent is to understand the situation so that if it
occurs, I can notify the user that the data is indeed in the field but
that they cannot view it. Then instruct them to select all, copy, and
paste into a text editor to view the data. I'd like to not have to do
that for all displayed data, just when the situation requires it.
