  9. JOB CONTROL - Added provision to carry across the Purchase Order "Reqd For" data into the Stock and Parts Issued files (for both Approved and Commercial Stores).

  4. TIME/JOB: OPEN EDIT JOBS Uncommanded deletes still persisted in Add/Edit of Tasks. Suspect the problem occurs in the filtered "Add" (Ctrl+N) call.
