 Hi Dennis

Thanks for your comments. I have run RPTCHK16 and DSX diagnostic programs
from Seagate/CR and I am confident I have all the DLL's loaded in the right
places as far as RPTCHK16 is concerned but none of my reports get past
error message "unable to load database". 

How to interpret the DSX comparison results is a bit of a puzzle to me,
because I don't have an NT4 box on which the reports run. So I may have to
install CRW an a client's NT4 box.

I may wrap all the reports into a D4 program using CRW32 ver I
hope this task will be as simple as I think.
