You must have the "Rawhide" edition. I think the "Chisholm" edition is the one that shrinks files.

I had to look at my software to see if I had what was needed, and sure enough, I do. You can toss some my way.

I appreciate all the offers to help convert the files. I probably should have done a little more homework. I started putting them in an ftp area and tried one on another machine. The files are BIG and they have embedded OLE links to graphics files spread out in other directories. In other words, the MS Publisher files would not work by themselves without locating all the fonts and images and setting them up in a similar file structure to the one on our server. ARG!!

In any case, while I have tried to figure that out, I have about half the files converted. I am not going to use embedded links in the future!

I did the Mark II, Centurion, and Snipe Hunter last night and today using my instruction booklets. If they'll help, let me know and I'll send them along.
