    There's no file attached. What extension is the file? ie. .pdf. Or what is error message you get?

    Sorry about that. I tried to attach it, but it obviously didn't work.

    The attachment symbol is a square with what looks like red dots.
    Underneath is....Con-1810instructions.DAT

    The "error?" message says cannot be opened by windows and advises to try from a list. Nothing on the list wold open it. I was then refereed to the web, but could not find anything I could understand.
