Thanks for your reply Andy.  One, what special developer's program. Pls
provide detail.  Second, if I can get some savings on the entire system I
will double the DASD.  Thirdly, I will look at the pricing of CAE and make
that decision.  Lastly, Query is a qiuck report writer, reusable, not too
complex,  can be learn quickly, and not as dangerous to give to beginners.
SQL is like a HLL  with all the powerhouse component.  As a System developer
and an Admin I have different use for these 2 tools.  Let me know if I miss
any of your points.
