Probably not, dumb question, so how did you find out? : : When we upgraded from 2000i I was told this was new functionality with rel : 2001. Did you use rel 2001? : Yep, briefly, middle 2002 to the fall, then got laid off and, after a gap, went on to WF. But the build I used was an earlier one, about 9 mos prior to yours. I'm sure it was the old style, and while I could be wrong (premature senility setting in), the WF functionality was new and different and a little confusing, telling me (by implication) that the 2001 dimensioning stuff hadn't changed. Which is why I think it changed midstream, not at a rev start, either 2001 or Wildfire.
