We currently use TRIMreport on HP-UX 9.04 and are
converting their application to a Windows95 environment.
Do you have any tools that automatically convert their existing
reports to this platform. The database will eventually be Oracle 7.3 on a
HP-UX 10.2 server.
TRIMreport runs on Windows, OpenVMS, a variety in Unix platforms
including Linux, etc... There is no need to migrate anything. The
customer simply needs to purchase a Win95 release of TRIMreport. If they
use VORTEXnet, then they don't even need SQL*NET on the Windows machines.
I'm migrating to new clients, which will be Win95 with SQL*Net.
So if my customer purchases the TRIMreport for Win95, they will be

No modifications at all. Even reports written in 1989 can be run using our
latest GUI tools. They will need to TRIMgen the report definition files on
WIN95 to create the correct .run files.
I need to create a flat file which is then going to be uucp'd to
our payroll company for merging with information they have and
then forwarded to our 401k plan administration company... thus, it

So, how would I do this in Trimtools?
There are several ways (as usual!). Using TRIMreport, create the report page
as length 999 and width 999. Then run the report using the "-f" flag to
not use any formfeed. Another method is to use a TRIMpl script, building
all the information you need into a list and then using list_file() with the
Does TRIMreport work with HP/UX ?
We know it works with 10.10 and 10.20. We currently build our products
(7/97) on 9.x.
Is TRIMreport year 2000-compliant?
TRIMreport maintains YYYY internally, but depending on the format masks used
the century portion might not be shown.
