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.
