    Thanks for your help.  I am running interchange 4.8.3 - i made those 
changes adding FES F2D FEG instead of the ups options.  I now no longer 
get ups shipping calculations.  I get nothing.  Some of the produts are 
rather light (under 2 pounds) not sure if there are shipping routines 
that prevent fedex calcs for this.

    Also as a side note, if i want to add some logic for shipping 
carriers.  (ie for x type of products use flat rate, for y use fedex & 
weight / zip code) where would one look to write this type of routine.  
Many thanks to all for the assistance.
