Jerry,

You must know the people here personally. ;-)

I try to use as much ILE as I can up through V4R5. At least this way I'm
still not back in the 80's on my S/34 and S/36.

But our MAPICS is still old as the hills. The most "current" vanilla code
in it is that Synon generated crap. I even found programs that had
controlling indicators on the left side, and they weren't from Input
Primary files either.

Thanx,

Nick

Hi Rob,

On your number 2 - I have been trying to get us to upgrade for sometime
now, years. But, the powers that be, say no. They say if it ain't
broke,
don't spend money and fix it.



Nick,

I know there's nothing you can directly do vis-a-vis the upgrade, but
that mentality is like saying "My System/3 ain't broke so...". Or more
practically the difference between a TV that can only receive
over-the-air channels -vs- cable or dish. Or still programming in RPG
II or III. I suppose those powers that be run their personal vehicles
until all of the oil is gone; once the engine seizes up, they overhaul
said engine and start over again. After all, it ain't broke.
