Dave, So did I. That's why I'm a "former" business partner. <rant> IMHO, IBM lost touch with the fact that we, as a professional community, sell solutions, not boxes. I would sit at these "meetings" which amounted to nothing more than a pep rally with the promise of a box of steaks to whomever sold the most of whatever for the month. Give me a break. I'm not sure which was worse, IBM doing the pitch or the other business partners drooling over the steaks. There has been a shift in culture in this country since I started in this field of endeavor. Maybe not. I don't know. Maybe I was just nieve in my youth and I've finally learned the "real" way that the Fortune 100 operate. But I don't care. I'm staying on my path. I'm sticking with solutions. </rant> David.X.Kahn@gsk.com wrote: > > James wrote: > > > The 600 CPW is a special (ya, that's it, it's "special") feature to > > make your month end closing run faster.
