Well said, that man! That's you back on my Christmas card list, then, Mate! smile

Meanwhile, anything new happening with Mariner? ... I can't say "Ancient" 'coz my stuff claims that territory.

PS: I have in front of me the genesis of the simplified "new system" that's been on the back-burner for the last two years. A sparse (clean) interface ... using VBX-style tabs. The minimum number of datafiles, related to each other as necessary. As configurable (by the user) as I can make it. No "codes" this time, just plain English. And (hopefully) a model that's easier for most users to understand.

I plan to make more use of other applications (that everyone has to hand these days), rather than "doing it all" within the system. Web-links, and stuff like that. What fun!

If you don't inspect ... don't expect.
