We started with the exact attitude that you have of not wanting to go=
through all the records manually, but we found that it was going to be a=
great way of making sure our records were accurate. Needless to say it=
took us 2 months to get all of our records into Emerald. We have been=
doing the billing through Emerald for 2 months and are about ready to go=
live and start authenticating with it also. We then plan to add the dll's=
for mailsite and Serv-U.
We also had many annuals and partial year payments. You will need to enter=
them manually.
Good Luck!

If you have seen this list, you know there are a lot of bugs in Emerald and=
the incremental releases.

Hope it helps
