Subject:PAF Photo linking in Word 97

I just tried exporting a couple of different report formats from PAF to Word97 in RTF "Print to File" format. The single included photo link was incorrect when the file was opened in Word, although it seemed correctly coded in the PAF 5 RTF export.

It was possible to click on Edit-Link in Word and browse to the correct link, make a change, and then have the photo appear in the correct position. Resaving the file in RTF format permitted me to correct the error or link to still another photo of my choosing. The Report then opened O.K.

Any clues as to which box I should check in Word to get a family photo and not a screwed up link to a Windows Program bitmap? Is there something missing in the PAF 5 export that caused the initial problem?
