Baan: Baan4c4 itl0,SP8,bA,bW - DB: BISAM, will be informix - OS: HP-UX 10.20 will be 11...
Question: is BA really not available in BaanV o higher?


I'm trying to stay with BA where our company is migrating to BW

But the main and most important is the data entry rate. For sales office that _do_ data entry not programmers or account managers. Being keyboard only and figures (numbers) commanded BA can't be beaten.

PV

Here are some points of dis-like with BW (sorry for poor formatting, was a table).

BW
------------
BA
-------------
where we found it
---------------

No copy&paste
--------
copy&paste as data possible
-------
any windows

No full line view
-------
view of all line data
--------
Mantain Receipts

No full line view
---------
available if terminal has auto form resizing
----------
any reports with 132/215 colums

BaaN sessions behave differently from BA
---------
----------
Most session with many fields per each form and as example
tiitmc401m090 second zoom.

Poor data validation in input field
--------
--------
any field where user doesn't validate with tab or return. It brings
a fatal error message.

keyboard shortcuts are different for different computers
--------
---------
bw version B40c.68 gives "save" as ctrl+w or ctrl+s


fatal error: "no permission for"
------------
session works normally
-------------
zoom fields

serious fatal errors leave "option dialog" open and on windows
9* this doesn't let turn off the machine.
--------------
--------------
windows 9* clients



BW Network load is much higher than BA (6x factor)
---------------
BA can be used from remote with lower bandwidth.
---------------
(attached a network capture sample)


Form don't resize and some data field aren't displayed.

tdsls4101m000 using 800x600

print to screen doesn't resize with wide format
--------------
Window's font switch to small pitch
--------------
Every printout to device D
