*****Lucent operates on a fiscal year ending on September 30th. So the 10-Q for the quarter ending 12/31/99 is actually quarter 1, not quarter 4.*****

Thanks, SS. Oops. Please forgive my ignorance again, but is it quarter 1 of 1999 or 2000? If it is 1999, my question still holds, because the numbers the report had for quarter 1 were:
Sales Growth = 6%, Inventory Growth 45%, Receivables Growth 46%.

Again vastly different from what I found. If anyone can spot what I am doing wrong, I would appreciate it. Meanwhile, I will try to get the right quarter.--CassBielski
