Hi All,

Regulars will know of my battle with a bit of software for a client that really doesn't know what is wanted or how to do it or what it should do. It is written in VB (not to offend anyone, I really don't see why but it has to be). There was a discussion over some serial numbers that were too big (again I spotted this flaw) and over flowing leading to corruption much. Agreement was reached all was good. Wait for a worrying amount of time and find the problem is they are not following the agreed spec for the serial numbers, which is causing a problem.
The software guy they have, his software works. Major problems. I get winged at by the boss the mod to there serial numbers seems to have been ignored. The issue is was bounced back to me to fix with as much speed as possible (despite me being hip deep in other testing!). The problem is they don't follow specs that were agreed on and then wonder why it doesn't work....Unsure | :~
