Hi Alan, thanks for the reply.
Yeah, we did do a fresh install as I wanted to force myself to adopt the new toolkit. I guess I'll just have to figure out how to do the same things with db2 instead. i5 was just a better solution in some cases. For instance, I have a "file ready listener" that tries to open a file that is being written to by the iSeries in RPG that works really well. Now, I'm trying to do the same with db2 and get mixed results so far (works 99% of the time). i5_new_record seemed to be a more efficient choice when adding lots of records to a physical file than sql. I'm sure there are ways to do this with the new toolkit, I'll just have to figure them out :-)
Thanks for the help and keep up the good work!
