Hi Joe,

Thanks for the info.

We don't do _any_ printer file, and display file work is very limited.

But I'll present the case to my manager.

Then again I'm "just a contractor" here, and the Philips mantra is "SAP unless..., Windows unless..." so I won't hold my breath.

Best regards,

Peter Colpaert

Just a quick question: will RDP save _me_ 20 minutes a week? I'm
using WDSCi 7.0 - which is still "free", as in "included with the
compilers", right?

It will depend, but yes I think it will. First, RDP is faster and
lighter than WDSC. Second, I find the outline and prompting a little
better. Those are relatively subjective, but they add up. On the
negative side, I like the stylesheet they use for help in WDSC better.
Little things.

But if you're doing *any* display file or printer file work, the screen
designer and report designer will probably save you 20 minutes a DAY.

And yes, WDSC is free, but it's also about to become unsupported.
