Problems notwithstanding, I feel way more comfortable with your
approach. Congratulations, and keep up the good work.

But the discussion begs the question:

Are the problems all related to migration?

Not all of them have been.  The problems fall into three categories:

1)  data migration issues
2)  issues relating to our refactoring of the code and its integration
with legact SL code.
3)  Query bind variable issues due to our elimination of SQL-injection issues.

Of those three, the data migration issues can take the most time to
work out (these all have to be done case by case), but the code
integration issues have been the most severe.

If I dump my old SL system and start again, should I expect problems
with a clean install? Our financial year ends 30 June, and my intention
was to switch over with a clean, empty database on 1 July.

My suggestion is to try to migrate if you feel you can.  Of course, by
July, I would be very surprised if things are not a lot better.

Best Wishes,
