I installed several patches. It should be up to date now, but I'm still having the issue. We are planning to upgrade that system and the other 98 systems to XP before the end of the year. The database is secured so I can't just send you a copy without unsecuring it first. Since I don't spend that much time in the office, I won't have the time to spend on doing that, although is was a generous offer. I may take you up on that in the future if the problem persists beyond the upgrade of the system. Thanks for you help.
