Hi Murray,

I'm beginning to like this printing capability. I'm not very good at it yet but I do see the potential for good reports. It takes a lot of code and but most of it is understandable. Crystal Reports is an attempt to greatly simplify things. And although this sounds crazy they've made it so damn simple I can't understand it. I just have so much trouble with CR. With this language you can use simple VB constructs like 'if then else' and in CR they do have 'if then else' but it's really different. I would rather spend 3 days working on one report than even 10 minutes with CR. I know that after spending 3 days with VB I would have something; 3 days with CR and all I would end up with is a huge headache.

Someday I'm afraid you're gonna have to upgrade from VB 6. I hope not though. No one would want to do all the conversion work on your codebase. Here's a business opportunity. Write a program to do just the report conversions. I say 'just' as if this would be trivial; it certainly would not be. But, if you, or one of your co-workers could do it it would be worth something. Maybe it's already been done; I don't know.

That's fabulous that your products do work for the government. That is HUGE!! If a company could have only one customer that is the one they should want; the US Govt. This is very impressive.

I'm a retired Fed. I was a software developer there for 30 years. I worked on administrative systems to include accounting systems. I had co-workers that worked on payroll although I never did. I know some of the complexities though and I know there are many.

Keep the faith Murray. I'm gonna get back to work on these reports. In this methodology one has to line breaks, page breaks, etc. I like detail work though so I'm a happy camper.

Thanks Murray and happy Wed. to you. jack
