Hi. I am in the process of upgrading to Infomaker 6.0 from 4.0. I normally
use the Text version of the SQL painter. In InfoMaker 4.0
there was an item under the 'Options' menu, 'Convert To Syntax'.

The 'Options' menu doesn't exist in InfoMaker 6.0, and the
'Convert To Syntax' item doesn't appear under any of the menus.

PowerBuilder 6.0 does have the 'Convert To Syntax' item under
the 'Design' menu.

The version of PowerBuilder I am using is Version 6.0 Build 390.
The version of InfoMaker I am using is Version 6.0.00 built on
November 12,1997.

Has this feature been removed from InfoMaker 6.0 or is there
another release I should be using?

IM6 definitely has this. It is under the Design menu. Be aware that you
can use the 'Design, Convert to syntax' only when modifying the sql of an
existing report. Using the SQL painter by itself you cannot (never could ).

I think it is available when creating a new report in both PB and IM.
