Does anybody know how to convert a graph which is white on a black
background to be black over a white background? The computer is a
pentium with windows 98 and the graph was created by print screen,
ctrl-c and ctrl-v to document word pad.

Windows Paint has an "invert colors" option that might be worth a
try...look in your Programs list under Accessories.  If you don't have
Paint, many image programs have similar functions.

Terrific!  Glad to hear this worked.  I would have liked to see the
actual before and after, but sometimes we researchers have to stay
just a wee bit in the dark, I guess.

Let me know if there's anything else I can do for oyu on this one.

I'm running XP, but this should still work on '98.

First open paint.  Start->Programs->Accessories->Paint
then paste your screenshot CTRL+V
click on Immage->Invert Colors
copy it CTRL+C
then paste it into wordpad CTRL+V
hope that works for you.
