The ASCAP songs are now divided between Costello & MacManus so you now need 2 searches instead of one.

Re: Elvis (solo ) plays Jackson,WY , April 13th 2016

The song "Vital Checks" is most certainly called "Vitajex". One look at the Wikipedia entry for the film "A Face In the Crowd" reveals this as part of the plot. It was a radio "jingle" sung by the lead character Lonesome Rhodes to promote some male tonic.

Re: Word docs

Saving as PDF's not only deletes the Hyperlink but it also dispenses with Comments too and there are a fair few of those in the documents in question. Thanks anyway for the suggestions.
