We converted from Mapics 4.0 to 6.0 this past week end. (11/5) The migration tool worked very good with the exception that it did not retain security "lock" information. Most if not all options were left "UnLocked" This is presumably because the new file has additional records (options) that the 4.0 file did not have. This was easily corrected with an SQL of the TSKDEF file "Lock" field to match previous file. Other "Gotchas" We did have some problems with 6.0 MRP & MPSP which required existing PTFs to be applied. You will also need to recompile all (most) inhouse written programs and resave all queries. Since PDM disappears with Rel 6.0, other problems might arise depending on whether you where previously using EPDM or not. (We were) This only hurts if you have users using the PDM greenscreen or IWP display options that do not have Browser access. Last item, some Mapics menu selection #s changed ( for no apparent reason ) which may cause problems if you are using Robot/Replay to auto run Mapics menu options. Jeffrey L. Hazelrigg Div.
