Is the text on its own layer? Have you tried moving the layers on the layers panel?
you text is on a layer and that layer lies beneath the layer your gradient is on;
or your gradient box has textwrap turned on.
Can you show us a screenshot of the page with the layer panel open and all layers extended?
BTW: Don't use EPS, use AI or PDF instead.
The text wrap was turned on.Thank you, thank you. I haven't used InDesign in many years and I have the newest edition and there new things with this version. Also thank you for your quick reply, I was getting frustrated, I knew it was something easy.
