meetings?

Dear Helen Groom,

Thank you for your response. Unfortunately the files you have sent are embedded in the Word document in a way that means I cannot open them. Can you send them separately?

Yours sincerely,

Mandy Redfellow

Joanne Kirkbride, North Yorkshire County Council

Hello Mrs Redfellow

You should be able to open the pdf documents within the word document unless you are working with an earlier version of Adobe? Please could you confirm if it is the pdf documents you are having trouble with.

Many thanks

Joanne

Dear Joanne Kirkbride,

Thank you for your repsone. I don't have a problem with other pdf files. I suspect it is due to the whatdotheyknow.com system. Can you append separately - this is the usual method and has worked in the past?

Yours sincerely,

Mandy Redfellow
