Dear Lissi, I'm not good on phones, and there is the time difference problem (I am, as you guessed, on the West Coast.) But I think I can give you the directions simply, if you're working in Word. This probably will be no help if you're in KEZ. Follow these steps and see if it works. 1. Open your book file. 2. Go to the File menu at the top of the screen. 3. Scroll down to Save As and click 4. Put the title of the book followed by a dot and the letters rtf. 5. Underneath there should be a series of choices that you can save in. click on RTF 6. Save and close. When you go to upload, after filling in the blanks you mentioned, when you come to the File box, at the other end of the blank box is the word Browse. Click on that. Find your book file and click on that. The title will go into the box. There should be a space before that that asked you to choose what form the file was in, and you should blacken rtf Somewhere on that page there is an Accept and a Reject. Click on Accept, and you'll be taken to a second page. Now the above may not help you at all (smile), because I'm at a disadvantage not knowing what it is you don't see. I've been told that the things I see on these upload pages are not in the same places for people who use the various technologies. If these steps don't work for you, hopefully someone else will answer you soon.
