We use it at at number of clients and originally had a heck of a time with number conversions. We created an in and out file, that have triggers on them to do the processing we want. When they write to the file, we trigger a routine to do the order processing, when an order get printed for picking, we trigger a down of the stuff we need. This keeps it linked but isolated and allows us to install it in different places without changing it too much. Hope this help some. (ps - we did have to get UPS in for tech support originally, but I donít recall what for). The 400 side was pretty straight once the ODBC connection was made. (and no one turns it off).

I let them attach via ODBC to the 400 for real-time collection of shipment data. This side of the ODBC is working fine. >We were a little leery about attaching directly to the AS/400 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.)
