    I did this and needed to manually adjust some flows. This was a little while back. It really was not too difficult and we have a large number of flows. Most of the nodes converted easily...

    I remember that most of the changes were around webrun nodes, ags transactions and ess/mss user record maintenance. If you would like help along the way email me and I could share more of my conversion process.

    We really like PFI - way better than professional...

    Strictly speaking, going from PFP to PFI requires NO changes to your flows. It is a desktop/designer change that enables additional nodes in the designer.
    Thanks for using the LawsonGuru.com forums!

    Thanks John for your info and the others that provided feedback.  I'm going on the provided documenation that you install the connector and designer then there is a PFI enabler.exe and installing transformation extender also on the download page for 9.0.1.9   No instructions on doing any conversions of current flows so I thought they would be referanced as they currently are today.

    Thanks again
