Thanks for the reply Don.

Since I'm a clarinet player (who attempts to play sax), I know it's Bb.  And
I also know the transposition I need to do.  Just couldn't figure out what
Band-In-A-Box buttons to push to get it done!  Eventually I want to be able
to read right off of the bass clef chart, but my sight transposition skills
(as well as my playing by ear skills) need to improve substantially!!
