Carl, I looked at the Para Research products a few years ago but not
recently.  At that time it had the typical AS/400 growth pattern  -  lots of
old legacy stuff, lots of RPG, lots of monolithic program designs, lots of
energy spent to solve problems that no longer exist.

I'm hoping to find something where there is a layer dealing with the data,
and a layer above that to deal with the business rules.

ADP has advantages, but it certainly isn't the blessing the ADP sales staff
would suggest.

I'd agree there are some good PC packages but in the end they don't usually
tie in well with AS/400 applications.

Besides, the client's management's position is that an application that has
run without flares, fires, disasters, or catastophes for more than 20 years
is not an application to be lightly put aside for an ever-moving target
called Windows.  There is no application I know that gets more management
attention than their own personal paycheck.  :)

Didn't Para Research have a very reasonably price G/L,A/P, A/R, P/R system a
few year back. Other suggestions include, use ADP or Paychecks or there are
some very good PC payroll packages. We use Peachtree Accounting.

A client has a payroll application with comment lines in it from 1983.
Exactly when the programs were first written is not clear but the point is
that the application has worked for at least 18 years and is now brittle.
Changes need to be made to correct some of the brittleness but it occurs to
me that there may be good payroll application software out there that is
currrent and also affordable. Any suggestions would be appreciated,
off-line advice would be welcomed.

Thanks all.
