Afternoon All,

I got a little problem.  I'm trying to display a graphics image in the 
Image Part.  I have decided to use a TIF image with LZW compression on 
and shrink the size down as far as acceptable.  This still creates and 
image of between 80K and 300K.  I've already got 10 images and they 
come to over 2Megs.  The area we are looking at using this in is 
likely to have 4000+ images and the amount of space required will be 

There are two formats which provide better storage: TIFF (using CCITT 
compression) and JPG, but as far as I know/or have tried neither of 
these are acceptable to VARPG.

Have a 2nd problem as well.  Is there a simple way of reading a local 
text file into a VARPG program, other than with a C/C++?

Does anyone have any ideas????
