We have updated the nuclear templates used in our fits to gamma-ray spectra and have corrected a systematic that we found in SMM/GRS data. We have now fit spectra from 19 SMM flare and 1 RHESSI flare clearly separating nuclear lines and continua from electron continua. We discuss these fits and information derived on the ambient composition of the solar atmosphere where the flare-accelerated particles interact and abundances and spectra of these particles.
