Hi, Richard,

Well, if it opens in your machine , there is evidently something wrong with my reader, and nothing wrong with the code I wrote to generate same.

I'm away on a break for a few days. I had my 62nd Birthday 3 weeks ago, but, were unable to escape. We are trying enjoy life in semi retirement, with a small important money spinning business running in the background, powered by my software.

I appreciate your comment, and will try changing the XPS ext to ZIP when I'm back.

I Think that you know that I write software for Laundrettes and Dry-Cleaners, specifically for our own chain.

There are No Trade or Other secrets buried in the Text Example I Sent. It is a Fictitious Customer with a Fictitious ancient Order. (The Bane of a laundrette is people not coming back to pay and collect, It Clogs up the shop, the work is done, but, the Till does not ring. )

The Program I am writing now, is a concerted attempt to attack this, by contacting customers. The First step there is, to ensure that ancient Orders that appear on the database, are still present in the shop. Whereas we Trust our staff, an order could have been given out, without the order being rang in, the staff pocketing the sale, and the Item remaining on the Database. At any rate, we do not want to contact customers over long forgotten items, when we no longer poses them, for whatever reason.

It also gives staff an other activity at quiet Times. Instead of drinking cups of tea, they have a Screen of alternative, and More Productive activity. Making Phone Calls, and finding People's goods. If people's goods can not be found, then there is no point in ringing the customer. Let sleeping dogs lie, and Management writes the item off. We tried it manually, and got things like "Oh I forgot about that, I will collect it next Saturday" Saturday came and went, we all forgot, order still here. This new program will pursue only say 10 old orders at the time, but these orders will be pursued vigorously.
Items Promised to be Collected By a date, will disappear of the ToDo List, but, will re-appear there after that date, if at that stage not collected and paid.

The Interface is being designed so that Junior Staff can handle it, kicking major decisions back upstairs. The Document I tried to print was a form, for staff to go around the shop, and find the goods. The First Step.

When you Opened the XPS File, could you read the Text as Follows:-
     Finding Old Orders in the Shop     
Printed by <????> on 01 09 16 - 23:40:14

Customer:-

If The Item(s) are Found you should     
Update the Computer Record, and         
Destroy this Page!
