(or, at least, the 270) IBM's answer: "Download the file to your PC and save it to a floppy" If I want to make a page segment, the answer is "run windows". If I want to do some of the features only in ops nav "run windows". Since the AS/400 is no longer anything but an attachment for our Windows PC, I don't think you can say that it is in ANY WAY competing with Windows. +--- | This is the Midrange System Mailing List! | To submit a new message, send your mail to MIDRANGE-L@midrange.com. | To subscribe to this list send email to MIDRANGE-L-SUB@midrange.com. | To unsubscribe from this list send email to MIDRANGE-L-UNSUB@midrange.com. | Questions should be directed to the list owner/operator: email@example.com +---
