Hmmm. Not too sure what you mean by this. Are you saying that not all
the reports needed are included in the file?? Or they're
not included on the FTP site?? Or not all the reports configured in Emerald
are available??

Well ... I've taken your suggestion of downloading >2.0.84 to check out
the reports. The reports that Emerald is trying to find that definitely do
not exist are:


Note that these are all found under the "Emerald" tab in Reports. There
is a report on the ftp site called expaccts.rpt . I downloaded it and
changed it's name to acctsexp.rpt . Running it generated the error "Error
in Formula".

There are also the reports in the "Custom" tab ... none of which exist:
acctsexp.rpt (same as in the Emerald tab !! :)

Downloaded it ... and also downloaded the pg32.dll file that I found in
the beta directory. Now it's complaining about "Unable to connect:
incorrect log on parameters".
