Haha! That's a great idea. And as soon as I'm done, I'll hop the first
plane to an Arab nation to mingle with the natives and try to convince them
that We Really Can All Just Get Along :)

Aren't Joe and Darren the designated beta testers?!

Our company is now ready to tackle the 4.0 to 5.0 upgrade and I
wanted to make sure I had all my ducks in a row. Historically
(months ago), I remember seeing posts about critical modules in 5.0
that had major problems (e.g. MRP). As the latest patch is now
v5.00.331, are there any other major issues that are still
outstanding or is 5.0 pretty solid at this point?

Also, if anyone has any upgrade pitfalls they want to share I would
be most appreciative.

The most solid a release will be is right before the next release comes out.

Can't report yet on MRP in .331. The best preparation you can do is to upgrade to 5.0 on the side a couple times before you do it live. This will give you an idea of how much time it takes, etc. You can do this on the same server that is running 4.0 if you do it right, although if you have a separate 4.0NT or 2000 box, that would be safer.

I'm aiming for mid Oct. to do the same. Haven't heard any rants in a
couple months.

If anyone has a check list of other updates, please share! A couple that
come to mind: extra GL numbers in Part Classes and Product Codes; New
security for memo entry in trackers; new stuff on Buyers.

I just ran a test install and conversion last weekend. I noticed the FOB
field is now coded rather than plain text. One of the conversion routines
rounds up all the junk previously typed in and makes a code table entry for
it, much like the Country table in V4 (Arrggh!!) Minor annoyance compared
to the Country thing, but I will be writing a "cleanup" program for that
one too, if anyone would like it.
