Stonefield Query Version 3.2 Build 3253

We posted updated versions of the Stonefield Query SDK, Stonefield Query for Sage Accpac ERP, and Stonefield Query for Sage Pro ERP today with the following changes.

All Versions

  • Fields with commas in the captions no longer cause a problem when used in cross-tabulation reports.
  • Under some conditions, previewing a report, then editing the report and closing the report wizard, then opening another data source and running a report used data from the previously open data source. This has been fixed.
  • Stonefield Query now gives a warning when you run a report that includes a memo field in a group header.
  • You can now use the SUM() function in a custom SQL statement.
  • Some dialogs were adjusted so things fit better when Spanish and Dutch are used. Also, the Find dialog displayed in the preview window is now properly localized.
  • Some labels didn’t have a sufficient left margin. This was fixed.
  • Filter conditions are now displayed properly when something other than a period is used as the decimal place character.
  • Clearing the filter for a report (that is, clicking the Clear button in the Filter dialog) no longer clears the exclude conditions for the report.
  • Exclusion filters weren't working under some conditions. That's been fixed.
  • Filter conditions are now displayed correctly if you change the language or date format Stonefield Query uses after creating the filter.
  • The currency symbol now appears correctly in a report if you use something other than the dollar sign ($) and specify a dynamic color or style expression for the field.
  • Linked fields, such as email or Web linked fields, now work properly in a PDF file; that is, you can click the linked value in the PDF reader to navigate to the Web site or bring up your email program.


  • The FilterCondition object now accepts the "is yes" and "is no" operators.
  • Adding multiple conditions to the FilterConditions collection now works.
  • Custom icons are now used properly when they exist in a directory other than the project

Sage Accpac ERP

  • Stonefield Query for Sage Accpac ERP now supports multiple languages. Currently, English, Spanish, German, and Dutch are supported.
  • All quantity fields now default to no decimal places. You can, of course, choose the number of decimals you want to use in the Field Properties dialog for a field in a particular report.
  • New Margin and Profit fields are available in Sales History Details in Order Entry.
  • Reports using Sales History Details from Order Entry and Customers from Accounts Receivable now work better.
  • Hours and Overtime House in Payroll Check Details are now formatted properly.
  • The new Amount field in Payroll Check Details displays negative values for deductions, so summing works as you'd expect in reports.
  • Filtering on Document Date (and some other fields) in the Combined Invoices & Credit Notes and Combined Invoice & Credit Note Details tables in Order Entry now works properly.
  • New Quantity (Stock U/M) fields in Invoice Details, Credit Note Details, Order Details, and Combined Invoice & Credit Note Details displays quantity amounts into the same unit of measure so they can be added up correctly. For example, if you enter one invoice of a desk lamp of a quantity of 5 with a UOM (unit of measure) of "each" and another of 10 with a UOM of "dozen", this field will give you a total quantity 125 as opposed to the incorrect 15 when these two records are added.

Sage Pro ERP

  • The Salesperson File in Order Entry now also appears in the Accounts Receivable module. Also, a new Full Name field in that table makes reports easier to read.
  • Scheduled reports now run properly.
  • You can now sort and group on the Email Address and Web Site fields in the Customers, Vendors, National Accounts Master, and Customer Connect Company Files.
