1. HELP!: DB/2 Query Manager (DB/2 v1.0) not available under DB/2 v2.1

As part of an upgrade of OS/2 v2.11 to OS/2 Warp v4, I have upgraded my DB/2
v1.0 installation to DB/2 v2.1.

I used to use Query Manager under DB/2 v1.0, to view forms, produce SQL
reports and enter data. There is no Query Manager in DB/2 v2.1. IBM
can't/won't tell me why this is the case. They seem to have removed it!

There is a copy of Lotus Approach v3.0 supplied with DB/2 v2.1. This will
run under WIN-OS2, and I can connect to my DB/2 v2.1 database through ODBC.
This all works fine, but the forms, panels and reports I previously had
under Query Manager for DB/2 v1.0 are not visible. They exist in the
database, but I can't display them.

I assume I'm supposed to re-enter all my forms and reports into Lotus
Approach manually, and access the DB/2 database through them using ODBC.

Has anyone else performed a similar upgrade? Does anyone have *any* advice?
Why is there no information on this? Am I the only person performing such an
upgrade? Help!

I'd really appreciate some advice on this, as IBM seem to have left us
without a crucial part of DB/2!!
