Hi Lawrence,

I noticed that too when I first took a look at IC5.3. I don't think 
this version uses the "areas" table because it doesn't get created 
when installing interchange or during catalog creation. I was 
getting those errors as well until I created the area table 
according the table specs from an IC5.2 installation. The error went 
away, but IC5.3 doesn't appear to use it for anything.

a man that at one time was an idiot and lived long enough
to learn from his own stupidity."
