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.
