I am also looking for a replacement to OV400 for a very small customer. They have 10-15 letters that merge data with text, and that is all. This has run, with zero problems, and no user intervention, in an automated process for 8 years. I would do this in RPG, but there is considerable font size changes, almost every line. The above letters needs to be hands-free.They use Word for all their individual letters. jim franz ----- Original Message ----- From: "Mike Cunningham" <email@example.com> To: <MIDRANGE-L@midrange.com> Sent: Saturday, January 20, 2001 2:35 PM Subject: OV/400 Word Processing being replaced by ? > I'm interested in hearing what any one out there might be doing about > your conversion away from OV/400 Word Processing.
