Is your company purchasing a new software package? If so, you basically
have two options:
1. Adopt the company operations to the new package
2. Start modifying the package to fit the company

Unless you are moving to a new version of a package that you are already
using, the likelihood of any of your existing programs working are
virtually nil. Even if you are simply upgrading to a newer version of the
same product, all of those programs need to be reviewed to see if they
need to be modified because of file changes between versions.

code do you concern yourself with?
