Hmmm, ditto to you, Jon.

Jeez, do you really think that 70% of the AS/400 universe is using RPG/IV?  In
my experience as a contractor, that would be way, WAY overstated.  This also
includes knowledge from colleagues in other shops as well.  Personally, I
would put the number around 40%.  Obviously, Jon, you're going to see higher
RPG-IV usage numbers at your presentations, user group meetings, conferences,
etc.  Do you think the "stagnant" shops are sending people to those?

Personally, I'm fighting the RPG-IV battle here.  When I started a few months
ago, it was "absolutely no RPG-IV".  Now, I've got one new RPG-IV application
in production and planning to write some new sockets apps in RPG-IV (and
convert some old sockets apps written in C sometime in the future).

BTW, the original post for "dds validity check" didn't mention anything about
date & time data types.  It seemed that it was a matter of the user pressing
the help key to get a list of the valid values that the message indicated.  Or
did I miss something there?
