WINZ 4.9 coming out before WINZ 5

A final version of WINZ 4 will be released to all users in November 2002, while WINZ 5.0, to be in Microsoft Access 2002, will be delayed until April 2003.

Originally, WINZ 5.0 was to be released in December 2002 or January 2003, but it was becoming apparent that an earlier release of the Annual Survey 2002 version of WINZ would be better in November 2002, while the move from Access 97 to Access 2002 (part of Office XP) will be a bit more commplex than normal. Therefore, by delaying its release until after the Annual Survey returns are in, there won't be so much pressure on users to get WINZ 5 up and running immediately.

As part of the WINZ 5 upgrade, users will probably have to return their WINZData.mdb file to ESR for conversion to the new system. This should only take a few minutes for the conversion itself, but larger files may require a CD-Rom for transportation. Assuming all 100 plus copies don't arrive at ESR at once, we would aim for at least a 48 hour turnaround. This is a one-off data upgrade, and after that updates should return to the more normal automated process that happens on loading the new WINZ version.
