We are in the midst of a v4.3 to v6 upgrade as well. We have been having problems with the upgrade.sql script getting an "invalid sql statement" error. We have just identified the problem. Is this the same error you are getting?

   I’m looking for anyone else that is using Kronos. We are trying to upgrade from Workforce Central v5.1 to v6.0 and have been having problems. They have a script, called upgrade.sql that has an anonymous PL/SQL block in it that does a lot of dynamic SQL. That block aborts part way through as they are trying to convert all of their text fields from varchar2 to nvarchar2 (and char to nchar and clob to nclob). There is no exception processing in the block and I’m having trouble determining which table it is aborting on. We are creating the test database by cloning from production. The vendor says that we have to copy production to test via export / import to do the upgrade successfully. My answer to that is that if we can’t successfully upgrade a clone of production, then how can we upgrade production?    My question is: Has anyone successfully done this upgrade?  

We are on Oracle Enterprise Edition, upgraded from just prior to the Kronos upgrade. I know that this is a bit off-topic, but hopefully someone here has done this and can help point me in the right direction.  

Thank you,
