To whom it may concern, I finally found and installed version 5.1.3 of the software. Even though I Have used it for just a day or so, I can really see the difference. As far as I am concerned, I am not going back. Like anything else, it will take a little time to really learn it but I like what I see so far.

Yes I have subscribed to the WDSCI list. -----Original Message----- From: cobol400-l-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:cobol400-l-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Jim Essinger Sent: Thursday, August 31, 2006 5:11 PM To: COBOL Programming on the iSeries/AS400 Subject: Re: [COBOL400-L] 'IBM says it's time to dich PDM/SEU'? You are welcome David. Just so you know, if you really can't give up your block cut, copy, move etc, commands in the sequence number area, I believe that WDSC LPEX editor supports those commands in the sequence number area of it's editor. I didn't like how I had to get over there to key the commands, so I learned the alt + L to highlight a line, then a few lines up or down do it again to highlight a block, and then use alt + (C to copy, M to move, D to delete) the highlighted lines. I think once you learn it it is much faster, and easier to see errors in coding, lines that have been commented out (different color) etc. Give it some time, and learn it. It is not a fast change over. But I really hate having to go back to SEU for any reason now. And subscribe to the WDSCI list. That list is monitored by the IBM developers, and by many WDSC/programming guru's like Joe and Jon. That is where I learned the most about capabilities. Joe won't pay me for this, (darn it!) but I believe he has a book on how to get comfortable with the RSE part of the tool. Replaces most of the PDM needs. Good luck! HTH
