Steve, 

May I recommend running the "text" file through BinHex 5.0. This sometimes
corrects problems in the header of the file that occured during transfer even
though the file may not have been compressed by this program.

BTW are you transfering through a Local Area Network modem?

Regards,
Bob DeLisio
