do I get the latest version of VA FileMan?
Download it right here! Here is FileMan Version 22, with patches through October, 2004, already included. This is a ZIP file that unzips to a file of 797 routines, "fm22.rsa", in Cache' format.

Yes. Just click right
FileMan is Y2K compliant. Be sure you have the latest copy of the FileMan date routines.
