RE: SAP on Oracle doubts

Correct.  What I meant by my "functional" comment was just that if you
can deal with the craptacular UI, the tight coupling to the database and
stupid transaction codes it will do what you want it to.  You are
correct with your metaphor to describe SAP as "using a handsaw to fell a
tree".

That's about the size of it.  Someone made the comment that their
applications where "functional" which is true, similar to using a
handsaw to fell a tree.  It's work, but there are better tools out
there.

Thanks you all for answers.

You just confirmed my fears ... there are also other configuration
issues which I did't mention here since if this can't be resolved, no
point to bother for the rest - 'take it or leave it' ;-)

cheers,
