Ahh thanks I did not get a time out that I am aware of, since I went with
my original 1.4 database the chart is probably something that got skipped
last May when I was trying 1.4?
I still did not see an option to add one if one is missing.

Will using the old one from 1.2 pose any problems for testing 1.4? It
seemed to work just fine.

Great.  There are no issues that I know of.  We do try to handle directly inserting into the chart view (this view will probably be going away in 1.5 in favor of the more normalized tables added in 1.3, btw, if you are porting code you should be hitting the account, account_heading, and account_link tables instead, since id collisions *are* possible between account and account_heading entries-- if you must query chart make sure you specify charttype = 'A' if joining). 

I now seem to have a functional 1.4 and 1.2 sandbox system on my laptop
for code migration work next week. 

Ok, as I mentioned timecards are currently broken and it is something I am working on hard.  If you have specific functionality we should merge in that area, feel free to hand me features to implement while I do this.  I just finished getting the _javascript_ overlay in largely working order so back to timecards for me next week.

Thanks again.
