The question (similar to MO.96531) is about the article by Professor Kazuya Kato in this book.
In this article, Professor Kato indicates the contents of the second part.

MathSciNet does not list it, so presumably it is still unpublished.

Several internet searches have not located it.

Does anyone have a copy that they are comfortable with sharing?

Dear SGP, if there were a way of finding out your email address, I would have sent a copy of the article to you. – Chandan Singh Dalawat Oct 1 '12 at 3:24
@Chandan, I have had pretty good luck by putting, in a comment, a link where an email for me can be found. In my case i put the C.M.L. search site of the AMS. Do you have a department web page with an address for you? – Will Jagy Oct 1 '12 at 5:13
For my email address, look at any of my papers on the arXiv (, or try if it works. – Chandan Singh Dalawat Oct 1 '12 at 5:18

Dear SGP, I hope you (and a few other committed MOers) have received the paper as an email attachment. However, I will make it publicly available here only if Professor Kato authorises me to do so.
