    Can you give us more info? Is this a packaged program, or custom written?

    :I can edit and put info in...

    What happens here? Can you see the info you entered? If you shut down the program and re-start, is the info you entered there? Is it that it jsut doesn't print?

    Maybe with more info, we can help...

    Thanks for replying Mellisa,
    The main program is on 4 floppy disks which contains data going back to 1900, the update is by means of another floppy disk with added data on it, I can go into this disk and add data, no problem, I can see the added data on the monitor and if I close my system down the new data is still there to be seen when I boot up again but will not print out, I think there is probably a hidden code or something which will not allow me to add the data, the program is I believe custom written.
