Thanks, but now I am getting a different error: "Invalid key links entry:
TABLENAME.FIELDNAME", but the tablename.keyfield names given in the message
are in fact the correct names.

I noticed in my own project that the key link is usually supplied by the
component without my having to enter it. That is not happening with your
app, probably because I am modifying rather than adding the components. I
hesitate to delete and re-add components, but don't see a good alternative.
Of course, I still have your original zip file.

May have more news later.

You'll need to find a tool that is capable of displaying bitmaps...I don't
know of one...but a bitmap-viewer is ultra-simple to write yourself, anyway.
