I let them attach via ODBC to the 400 for real-time collection of shipment data.
This side of the ODBC is working fine.

I created a new library with only two files in it.  One has the file for
Worldship to do the SELECT to import the information.  The second has the file
for their INSERT statements for exporting data.  The user profile is excluded
from everything else on the machine.

I'll probably set up exit point programs when we're done too as a belt and
suspenders check.  This is the first ODBC we've done at this site.

UPS seemed to think our code level was OK, so they are trying a scratch
reinstall as we speak.  (Yesterday's normal uninstall/reinstall didn't seem to
do it, but it left behind many configuration settings.)
