Thanks for your reply to my question. Yes, I did know that UFT was no
production, but thought it might be cheap update from Roots V, especially if
improvements warranted it ($0 is very cheap <grin>).
After a gap of several years I have resumed research and found the control
printed reports in Roots was not as flexible as I was used to in MSWORD,
and thought a newer version of Roots/UFT could help, as well as curing some
other quirks. I posted to the list for clarification about the changes and
UFT vs R5 and didn't really want to buy a new program over a problem that I
could work around.
When I update my PC's operating system from Win98 I guess I'll have to
new program anyway so perhaps I'd better consider changing now. As you
TMG seems popular for various reasons, including the direct transfer of data
UFT so that might be the way to go.
