Ops Nav has been getting better but here are a couple places where it
went backwards:

In ISQL you can no longer cut/paste the result into a spreadsheet.  In
you could not only cut/paste but select which columns you wanted.  Now
to do
that you have to use MS Query (or similar product).

Also in ISQL, if you want to save a query definition to the desktop you
to save it like this: D:\Documents and Settings\phil\Desktop\QRY1.sql.
That's a pain.  The idea behind saving it to the desktop was it was

And each time I use it I have to sign in again with that java dialog
that always goes to the upper left corner and inspite of the remember user
id and password check boxes - never does.  So I sign on when I start Ops
I sign on to the 5250 screen.  Now I sign on to use ISQL.  That's like
the security guard who knows me by name asking to see my id badge after he
saw me use it to unlock the door.

This irks me because there are many new features which make upgrading
to V5R1 worthwhile but what they've done to ISQL is like a stone inside
your shoe.
