    Right now I have a Function that will save the file to disk as a text 
file but it needs to be modified and that is where I need some help.  The 
file may be opened with Simple text, word,etc.  but there is garbage at the 
top and bottom of the document.  That garbage is formating which I need to 
remove.  What is the best way to do this?      
    I would also like to save the entire field as is (windows calls it rich 
text format) too.  Staz said there was a PG function in Text ED. Fltr (FB3) 
that would do this.  I looked at it but didn't understand what parts I needed 
and what parts I didn't.
    As far as printing it, I have a Function that I modified that will print 
1 page.  This works perfectly but I need to modify it to print more than 1 
page and this is where I need some help too.
