Re: Budgeting to replace V5R4



fixed

Seems a bit vague, but maybe, like me, you're just really busy.
"most of documentation" - does that include both Memo To Users? Do they
include some examples?
Something's tickling my memory on this but I've been on 7.1 for a couple
of years now so that experience escapes me.


"The only spot I have seen customers have trouble with in a V5R4 to V7
upgrade". Really? Everyone passed ANZOBJCVN on the first try? Wow! I
am sure you meant "the only OTHER spot". :-)

Is this something you can catch by scanning sql monitors for certain
statement execution? Like "left outer join" or some such thing?

How does one budget for this? Or is this an encouragement to contract
with a vendor who's done enough of these conversions to have caught
undocumented gotchas?

I'm trying to help people plan for and get to 7.1, hopefully safely. Not
to increase their fear of upgrading from V5R4.
