I'll add this: If you want to use the reports available in v.4, but not yet
in v.5, then you need to import your data into v.4 first. That is, you can
transfer data from v.4 to v.5 at any time, but you can't go backwards from
v.5 to v.4. Many of us still use v.4 as our main program, but have v.5 also,
learning to use it and occasionally using features that it has and v.4
doesn't. I enter my data into v.4, then import it into v.5 whenever I need
to use v.5. That way I have the best of both versions.
Another thought: If you decide to use v.4, then you probably got 4.0c on CD.
If so, you'll need to upgrade (free from Wholly Genes website) to 4.0d. There
were some bugs in 4.0c that are fixed in 4.0d.
