Ya know I opened the file in a text editor without a problem, but did  
not try to write to it, thinking that since I only tried to read from  
it in Revolution I should be able to do so. I should get the result  
when I open a file anyways but thsi was a quick and dirty utility. I  
will give that a try. I suspect you may have nailed it.
