Glad to hear you're getting it under control.

Ahah, but we thought of that possibility. :) A customer who signs up on
the 31st of a month will have a billed thru date of the last day of the
following month, if that month does not have 31 days.

Actually, it will be reset when you take the first payment from that
customer - but basically, the same end result. Emerald will keep
setting it for you.

That is correct. Then, when you run your first billing cycle in
Emerald, the Billed Thru dates will advance, but the Expire dates will
remain the same until you receive payment for each invoice. When you
take a payment, that MBR's Expire and Paid Thru dates will advance to
match their Billed Thru date.

Sure thing. Hopefully, a few list readers out there are learning
something new too!
