Oh brother, sorry to hear about that Robert!

Everyone has to keep in mind that JBA's GUI tools or PC based screens are
strictly screen scrapers.  There is no true Visual Basic - Like
functionality behind them.  If you have ever seen the software package
GUI/400 from Seagul Software, then you will know exactly what I am talking
about...  Strictly screen scrapers.
