Users who had been deleted in Rel 2. showed back up. Users still on the system, with the beginning letter P, and above, disappeared. When I called MAPICS, I was told they are aware of it but that no fix was available. When I went to put back in the missing users, I discovered their authorities to each module came back. This brought about some playing. I put a user on the system into MAPICS and granted all authorities. I then deleted the user from MAPICS. I then removed the User from the AS/400. I then went back and put the same user profile back on the system and then created the user in MAPICS. No surprise, all authorities showed up. Again, I called MAPICS and was told they are aware but there is no fix. The only suggestion given was to remove all authorities first, then delete the user. If you are not upgrading, you could have "GHOST" users floating around. In small shops (or large), if you use initials for users ids, you can have some major problems. Beware and pay close attention at upgrade time to your MAPICS Security ID's. +--- | This is the MAPICS Mailing List! | To submit a new message, send your mail to MAPICS-L@midrange.com. | To subscribe to this list send email to MAPICS-L-SUB@midrange.com. | To unsubscribe from this list send email to MAPICS-L-UNSUB@midrange.com. | Questions should be directed to the list owner/operator: email@example.com +--- +--- | This is the MAPICS Mailing List! | To submit a new message, send your mail to MAPICS-L@midrange.com. | To subscribe to this list send email to MAPICS-L-SUB@midrange.com. | To unsubscribe from this list send email to MAPICS-L-UNSUB@midrange.com. | Questions should be directed to the list owner/operator: firstname.lastname@example.org +---
