    Thanks to Mike and Bjorn for their assistance.  I spent time going over their suggestions trying to find some easily fixable problem.
    The good news is that my ANSI file was never the problem.
    Eventually I reinstalled the program in a different file but that did not fix the problem.
    So I installed the program on an Acer Netbook and voila....the program displays the map properly.  So apparently it is likely an issue with my computer graphics hardware.  It is a five year old Lenovo 3000J Series.  AMD Athlon 2 processor.
    The display info is below.  I am not sure if updating the drivers is possible or will help but that is worth checking.  
    If anyone has any ideas relative to the apparent graphics problem, I will try to make changes in that area.
