I have an application that’s compiled in Clipper 5.02d. It was running on a Novel 3.1 network. Now someone wants to upgrade the Network to Novel 5.0. Should this pose any problems?

On the server side not, as this is invisible towards the clients.
On the workstation side you are only secure if you install IPX on the server (and the whole network indeed) and if you keep the very same Novell client on the workstation. Upgrading to newer Novell client versions, e.g. the one required to run TCP/IP with NW5, is a risk for any DOS application and definitely also for Clipper.

Hope this helps,
