Lenny,

In a message dated 97-10-28 19:29:35 EST, you write:

Hmmm.  Never tried this before, so I'm not sure that it's possible.
 Conceivably, you could create dup's (with data *YES) of libraries ASSETO,
ASSETF, ASSETSAVE, ASSETASP01 (or whatever change management journal library
you specified at install) and ASSETGPL -- then change all data areas in the
ASSETO duplicate that reference these library names to point at the new ones.
 Not sure I'd trust it, though.

We went through the two phase process for the very reason you mentioned --
different answers every time you call SSA.  Both went smoothly (as opposed to
the V3 - V4 upgrade).  The save/restore answer is probably valid, as this was
possible between 3 and 4 where the "@" sign (apologies to International users
that can't read the "at" sign) went away from the front of keywords.  Better
safe than sorry, though.

If this works, you'll need to do the same for the ADD libraries -- if you use
that piece of, uh, software (I use that term loosely).

Just make sure that you have a solid (AS/400, not SSA installation-generated)
backup of the above libraries in case you need to do an emergency restore.
 We have over 200 application sets, and experienced no difficulties that I
recall.

One word of warning -- if you are using the Turnover CMS, make sure that your
installed version of the Set/Turn AS/Set Interface will support V6.
