      Ver 5 is DOS. What Operating system is he using?When I went to W98 I installed Ver 8 that I had running on my DOS system and had problems so I went to Q98 Deluxe. Unless you have a b/u of the Ver 5 data set I don't thing you'll be able to run with Ver 5 again. I believe windows versions of Q make changes to data files that are not reversible. Maybe tech support has an answer.
