my personal experience includes using manuals/texts
also. problem is, i dont have many of them and the ones
i have usually don't address the problems i ask.
definitely feel that point

i can't go into why my situation could/would be different than what
you described above. all i can say is that no one has to answer my
questions if they don't want to.

i'm learning by way of this list (immensely) my text, and the online
library of as400 manuals, which helped me in doing my overlay on my
own i might add. besides, reading the book doesn't necessarily mean, a
person will get it, no matter how much they cram.

i'll be back in a few..
