In the past, I have been able to paste something (either text or graphic) into
Powerpoint and save it as a .wmf to use in Infomaker 4.0. Recently, I have run into the
problem of "data window error", "incorrect syntax" when using one of these .wmf files
and either previewing or running the report. Deleting the graphic allows the report to
run fine. Nothing on my system has changed. Any ideas?

Most likely this is caused by using a long filename and / or directory name
when saving the WMF file.
