Hi Alex,

The original was commercially created for my son and the only metadata I could 
find in the document was the authors name. My son needs to make very minor 
text changes from time to time which would cost him, hence my endevour.

I will try out OpenOffice 3 PDF import/edit/export in openSUSE11.1B3 next 

Thanks again
