Sorry for the delay, we have a new plant coming up on BPCS Monday, November
10!  I haven't had any non-billable time available at the client site to

In a message dated 97-11-04 06:45:26 EST, you write:

You are correct on both counts.  I checked the Set/Turn version window and
got the same results that you did.  I don't know if we installed a patch that
just didn't update the "requirements" data within Set/Turn, or if the old
version still works.  Unfortunately, the person primarily responsible for the
upgrade is no longer around (which begs my continuing lament -- "Treat your
people right, or _LOSE_ them.")

We _have_ ADD on our development 320 (4-way), but that doesn't mean that we
_use_ ADD.  Our production box is a RISC 530, but we have no development
tools installed.  I included the ADD reference only for those foolish enough
to waste their time using it.  The first time it showed me the wrong contents
for a variable (multiple views of the same file in the same program), I told
everyone at the site to quit using it -- and they did.

SEVERAL new % functions have been added, many of which are used in BPCS
V6.x.xx.  We really haven't had time to evaluate the new functions, but we
needed ADK 6.0.2 for BPCS 6.0.02PLF++++.  Manuals are no longer available,
you have to pull them off of the CD-ROM.  As usual, we've found some
functions that _USED_ to work w/in the syntax checker (can't remember which
obscure ones they were off the top of my head), but no longer do.

Feel free to ask if you have any more questions...
