Ah, good advice. Made things much clearer for me so that I could spot the
stupidity of my error, that being an unneeded period in the committeeCode

No, the committeeCode is the beginning of the file name. So the file names
end up looking like "cowJul52005agd.pdf".
Josh, you asked:

Just ignorance on my part in conjunction with being a web department of 1
:-). I am not a schooled programmer, which I'm sure shows. Actually, after
this site is launched, I will hopefully be taking some ASP.NET classes with
the goal of converting the site over to that technology eventually.

Thanks for the help and hints!
