Dumb question #1——Do they have an ODBC driver for the AS/400? As long as there's an ODBC driver, the data from PF/LF's is available, just set up data sources as needed with appropriate library lists.

I just got a new PC, with WordPerfect Suite 7. I find the data retrieval stuff to be at least awkward, compared to MS's stuff with Word, using MS Query. But then, I've not looked at this stuff too hard, yet. Seems there's some stuff about Database Desktop or Data modeling Desktop or ??

Good luck
