I have received a few mails similar to your own, all with the same solution 
to my problem. 

I have looked at the offending file and it only contained a dye 
terminator matrix. I have made the other types, so hopefully this 
will clear up the problem.

Thanks for the help


PS if it doesn't work, I'll be back in touch!
