John, Michael,

The only caveat with the routines are that converting a
table TO XLS can be quite slow (we have an old i5-250, running V5R3) . In

either .XLS or .XLSX format.

I have wanted to install and play with iSeries Python for sometime now, but
I'm afraid that the free time for that is hard to find. Also, I worry that
