I recall a story that was told to me by the owner of a large homebuilder (4,000 homes per year) about a bigger homebuilder that put in SAP. Three years and $35 million into the project, they were still not running "live". Paul Nelson Arbor Solutions, Inc. 708-670-6978 Cell pnelson@xxxxxxxxxx "Courage is contagious.

They tell me that SAP is successfully used along with a lot of other major packages. You also might check the archives here. I recall a lot of discussions about companies spending _years_ and _millions_ to get SAP up without actually making it there. Good Luck.
