3.0 to 5.1 "The Plan"

If you are going right from 3.0 to 5.0, I don't see much reason to pause at 4.0 to do any testing. It sounds like a waste of time. But definitely do the 3.0 to 5.0 thing and then have accounting check all the numbers. That is the area of greatest concern, I feel (accounting that is). That is where we ran into a couple snags in the 5.0 conversion.

The 3.0 to 5.1 game plan has been modified thanks to a paranoid "Bean
Counter" and replies from this group. We (That's I with moral support
from upper management)are going to do our test upgrades one at a
time. First test weekend 3.0 to 4.0; Account then runs all of her
reports until she is comfortable; 4.0 to 5.0, etc. Once the test runs
are complete and the Account gives me the nod, I will do the live
upgrade over a Shutdown the week of Christmas. Bonus, they are
willing to give me Christmas Day off. This is actually a better
situation for me, as I do not pretend to be a systems wizzard in any
shape or form. My upgrade notes for 3.0 to 4.0, are dated Sept.14,
1999. Is this the latest and greatest? Does anybody have what they
feel are better instructions? Any words of wisdom from you "Wiz Kids"
are appreciated.

Thanks,
Les
