I thought about overprinting. May be an issue. But, in previous tests, I had field overlap and the garbled stuff printed. So, I am confused. Can't do a lot until Monday. Had to see how it looks on paper when the printer is miles away.

You may have another field overlaying the field you are expecting to see?

I just had to do the same thing, switch all fields from line position to
use the "POSITION" keyword because I wanted to use lines on that page...
