Thanks VERY much for the URL...

I regret that I can not post the vendor's name, but suffice to say that
in the long ago past those who worked here apparently gave him a good
reason not to give us his code again.  The people involved are long gone
and I don't believe you will ever run across this package anyway.  It is
very specialized for a small niche market in a certain part of the
country.

The IBM URL for this is:

Print the page, and go for a long sitdown in the bathroom, because it

scare the #$%% out of you.

BTW, what does your software developer to for you in the event of an
emergency when you have to go a hot site, or when you test at a hot
site.
Most software developers will give you a key for limited time testing
(72
hours is typical).  If yours won't, please post the SOB name to this
list
so we know who not to buy  from.
