Joe -

It really works well as far as I have progressed.  I did not know 
how many pages I needed, so it was hit and miss, but it works.  
Add the pages then link them.  Voila...drop the text into text 
frame one and everything flows to the other pages.  Then I need 
to add the photos which is quite easy.

Still a lot more to learn, but this seems to be a very flexible
