 ??Related fields print but don't view

Thanks for the response, John.

A big NEVERMIND is in order. For some undetermined reason, the problem
has ceased.

Simple Preview mode should have shown the related fields regardless of
record, although _what_ was shown would of course vary by record. And
what I meant by 'draws its name...' is that the form letter has related
fields placed in it which refer to data in the related (parent) file
which keeps the names and addresses.

Thanks for the response. Still don't know the problem, but why fight
good karma?
