your story sounds too typical.  sometimes ibm doesn't know who's on

we went with asna for visual rpg 3 years ago.  

you can download trial copies of their products from the internet.  and
when you call, you get a real live person.

another thing that has impressed me about asna is they have customers
all over the world, but they really do seem to know each and every one
of them.  amazing.

we had considered ibm's visual rpg, but at the time it required os/2 and
that wouldn't work for us.  and visual basic was too difficult to
interface, and odbc was ledgendary in it's slowness.  asna's product has
it's own utility, datagate, that gave you record level access to the
as/400 data.  in the code you could chain, read, etc.  at the time it
was a dream come true.
