We are in process of installing a new 720 with domino/lotus notes.
We too use OV/400 with doc merge for all our letters.
We have purchased OV for the 720 and are planning on converting our docs one
at a time to Notes.
We do not have a network at all at this point (all green screen) so we are
biting off alot.
Which is why we are going the OV for now on new box and convert as we get to
Hopefully by the time OV is all the way dead we will be off it.

We have been told by OV and Notes people alike that what we do (merge doc)
can be done very easily with Notes. I hope so because we have sold this to

A funny tidbit is that on the conf call with OV and Notes people they were
shocked when we told them all our letters were done in OV. Their question
was how did we convince them to use it.
