Dear all
KGB's answer is on the money....

There are a few other points that I would make

1. There are two platforms for ASReml that are useful. One is the ASReml-W
family and the other is ASReml-R. These both come with the same license
and so I would always recommend that being bi-lingual is a good thing.

2. ASReml-R 3.0 is now as flexible in terms of modelling etc that ASReml
standalone is. There are big advantages of being able to move from one or
other platform depending on the application. I use both - but I prefer the
R environment as it comes with so much other useful tools that I rarely
have to think about things like Excell@@@@

3. If u need a leg up with R code etc please feel free to contact us more
and we can provide numerous scripts etc

4. We are at present in the midst of developing an ASReml-ontap web page
which would be home to a lot of such material as well as theory and
background references. We will make an announcement as soon as it is up
and running
