    Default Converting V4 to V7

    I have been using Alpha4V4 for many years and have many scripts, applications, reports and letters. Will all of these transfer directly to version 7 or must they be re-written?

    Paul:

    You'll have no problems. All forms, searches, reports, scripts, and other supporting files will automatically be usable in Version 7 - as is.

    it is always a good idea to work with a copy of your files and application.

    Most every thing in A4V7 is the same as all other A4 issues only real differences are Date 2k support, and now it adds windows print drivers. We work in a mixed inviroment of Win9x, WinME, and WinXP with no noticable problems. the big note is that you will have to reinstall all the printer settings in V7 as those do not translate over, but a small problem if you ask me.

    As far as the printer definitions are concernred, just do a DOS COPY command from the A4V4 to the a4V7 sub-directory.

    Thanks for all your help. As soon as I can get an OK I will upgrade to V7. Then I am sure there will be more questions.
