Booth !

Do you have a "better" name than that (i.e. the actual name on a license piece 
of
documentation) ?

GOOD luck finding any AS/400 based software to do this for a number of employees
like this. It is next to IMPOSSIBLE to cost justify. We went through this last
year and have about 250 employees. ADP does our payroll but we needed to have a
way for remote sites (7) to get the information to use. The AS/400 had replaced
an old NCR Unix machine with homegrown apps, one of which was this "Time and
Attendance" system. We ended up contracting it out (in progress EVEN as we
"speak"). Let me know if you want more information !
