Kent, If you have modified 100 mapics pgms and dsp files. I would consider that
a lot.

But, As an FYI. I have had success re-compiling these pgms using let say R7.8
mapics. IF the pgm compiles it will most likely work in the new env. You just
won't have what ever has been changed by INFOR. But you were not using it in the
first place.

And this is the same with your user code that touches mapics files. you should
be able to just re-compile. Again any flds that have been added to the data base
files you were not using them.

Now if you want to investigate the new files / Fields that are avail then yes
this could take time.

good luck

Subject: Re: [MAPICS-L] Anybody running Release 5.5 on V5R4?


I wouldn't say we are heavily modified.  We have modified maybe a
hundred programs and display files.  What would take time to modify
would be all of our "in-house" programs that use MAPICS files and other
programs (like RF) that use the off-line load to process transactions.
We also have a configurator product that uses KBC to build customer
quote orders that I'm sure would be impacted.  There are a lot of
"fringe" programs that will require us to analyze and maybe require a
change to make work.  Of course all this depends on the release and what
changes to the file structure there are.

Like I have said, I am not the MAPICS expert here.  If my manager says
it will take 1 person 6 months to make a different release of MAPICS
work, then I trust him enough to know that is what it will take.
