Hello Leslie!

    If you can find your installer and if you you are in the mood, in 
addition to my pray to make the thousandseparator changeable,
 maybe you look at the BDE-Help, on "withoutSQL" version, where there are 
some problems, see:
BDE cofiguration topics\BDE cofiguration settings\System settings\System 
INIT settings

    In "withSQL" the Help is working ((which is why I used this version, 
without the SQL options from inside, because the direct
change of BDEADMIN.HLP file doesn't works)

Thank you again for your work.
