Thanks, I was looking for an AS/400 last year when I had the money, however I don't now (SNIFF, SNIFF). The advise on VB and Excel is good and manageable. I have done a lot with Excel and used ODBC to import data from the AS/400. I have also set up jobs on the AS/400 to FTP files to PCs and run remote jobs on the PC to incorporate the data on the PC server's database. Meanwhile I have been studying for MCSE certification. Thanks, Julio. -----Original Message----- From: firstname.lastname@example.org [mailto:email@example.com] On Behalf Of Steve Richter Sent: Thursday, December 06, 2001 3:15 PM To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Re: AS/400 Programmer Julio, If you are staying with the as400, here is some unsolicited advice from me. Learn as much Visual Basic and Excel as you can with the emphasis on integrating those tools with the as400. You said you have a windows network at home. If you have $1700 available, look for an as400 on ebay. You can get a basic model 150 with an ethernet feature for about that price. Once you have a 400 on your network, you will have all the hardware you need to hone your pc to as400 integration skills. Good luck, Steve Richter _______________________________________________ This is the Midrange Systems Technical Discussion (MIDRANGE-L) mailing list To post a message email: MIDRANGE-L@midrange.com To subscribe, unsubscribe, or change list options, visit: http://lists.midrange.com/cgi-bin/listinfo/midrange-l or email: MIDRANGE-Lemail@example.com Before posting, please take a moment to review the archives at http://archive.midrange.com/midrange-l.
