I have still had no word from Dead Aim or Helpmewin.  I hope you both are well.  I was trying to email my file to a friend for our states pick 3 and I came across a snafu.  The file is to0 large.   Apparently a file over 20 MB cannot be "attached"  That means I will have to start deleting charts.  Since many tabs are linked, I have to do this rebuild with extreme precision.  I have already saved an archival file, in case I ruin it.  I have to use skydrive or upload to dropbox if I want to share.  Those are new things for me so I am hesitant.  Anybody else out there have similar situations?  It's a little frustrating because I bought a new laptop, and cant get the file over to it.

While I was typing this, I just had the idea to save the file to a flash drive.  You guys are great!  Thanks for the help.  I am going to do that right now.

    Did the flash drive work?

    A mind once stretched by a new idea never returns to its original dimensions!

      I normally will zip the file and upload to onedrive.

        I have not tried it yet.  I was rummaging through my junk at home and could not find the one I bought to transfer my very old files from a year ago.  I just came from Microcenter where I purchased three new Flash Drive.  Two 8Gig, and one 16Gig.  I will try later and post an update.

            Did the flash drive work?

            The first flashdrive was an emtech looney tune theme.  Marvin the Martian.  He was pretty cool looking.  I plugged him in and it just started copying files automatically.  That was kind of scary.  So I just ejected it and returned it for a refund.  The second drive worked well, it was  a 16 GB 2.0.  The third drive was also cool looking.  It was a 8 GB minion by Illumination.  It worked well also.  Except the head is a little large when you plug it in so it pushes on any other UBS device.  Also a little pricey at 12 dollars.  The microcenter 16 GB is only around 5 dollars.  I am using the office 365 and I find that if the file is too big, there is a lot of "not responding" pauses, which can be frustrating.
