Pete,

You probably won't like how we handle this at Fleetwood.   We don't allow
people to do this.  If they have a data entry application, they do it on
the iSeries.  Period.  It's such a terrific database handler, and has good
enough reporting tools that we can't come up with a rational reason for why
anyone would do it the other way.

Of course, you do realize that this is this way at Fleetwood due to our
users - and you are familiar with them.   Most of them think a spreadsheet
is something you put on a bed.....  And the good ones prefer to pull the
data from MAPICS (or other apps) and put it into spreadsheets if they want
- they don't go the other way.   They like their green screens and Browser.

Morning everyone.

  I am trying to take an excel spreadsheet that I initially created from
the 400 with data. Some data was keyed inot columns that I provided. When I
try to transfer the spreadsheets back to the 400 I am getting errors that
data in this field is incorrect or does not match the PC data type. I think
what has happened is the users keyed into a flds that they were not meant
to. I have tried using the data transfer off the client access session. I
have also tried using the data transfer option on the speadsheet itself.
Neither works.
  Hope this makes sense.....

  Is there a way to prevent this???

  Thanks in advance...

  Pete Olshavsky
