           XQS, EMBL31, Genbank 72
           =======================

Has anyone else had the same problem with XQS version 3, EMBL31 and Genbank72?

o The type and copy commands elicit the response that any given EMBL or Genbank
  entry code is not in the database.

  XQS> bases EMBL
  XQS> type/text ebv
  EBV cannot be found
     The entry is not in the database

o The author and keyword searches work OK and give a list of entries.
  None of the entry codes reported can be typed or copied.

o BUT ..... you can type the whole list!

  XQS> author abe
  .
  .
       27 authors found
  XQS> list
      149 entries on the current list
  .
  .
  XQS> type/text
  code:
  current list entries will be processed
  .
  .

  Then you DO get the text for the entries output.

  Solutions to this problem welcomed. None of the smaller databases appear 
  to be affected - ie: PIR, Swissprot, daily EMBL updates.

  Does anyone out there NOT get this with EMBL31? If so I must suspect my
  index creation software, or XQS version3. I have run the index creation
  twice now to make sure.
