Stonefield Query Version 3.2 Release Candidate 2

Stonefield Query Version 3.2 Release Candidate 2 is now available. It has the following changes over Release Candidate 1:

  • The report wizards now open more quickly when there are a lot of folders. Part of the change involves adding a new index to the reports table.
  • The Template Editor now uses the first template as the template's template rather than giving an error when creating a new template in the rare case of the default template missing.
  • In Step 2 of the report wizards, selecting a table that isn't a favorite and then turning on the Show Only Favorites option no longer shows blank in the Tables dropdown list.
  • You no longer get an error when creating an exclusion filter on the only table in a query. In fact, you now get a warning if you create an exclusion condition on any table that's already in the query, since that generally doesn't make sense (you can use a normal filter instead).
  • The Analyze Database function now properly handles the SOURCEDATABASE field.
  • You no longer get an error when running Stonefield Query with an encrypted project.
  • You no longer get an error when querying on a table with a field named LCALL.
  • The preview window now displays properly when the "Use old engine" option is turned on in Step 5 of the Quick Report Wizard.
  • Closing the Quick Report Wizard and answering No to the "do you want to lose your changes" prompt no longer closes the dialog anyway.
  • An error in the Schedule Report Wizard that occurs when trying to report another error to you was fixed.
  • The Create Help Files function in the Configuration Utility now uses the Logo Image property for the image in the first help topic.
  • Clicking the builder button for the "Use dynamic expression for color" option in the Field Properties dialog now brings up the correct dialog instead of doing nothing.
  • Changing the name of a new report now properly updates the heading for that report.
  • Closing the report wizards when you started to but didn't complete entering a report name no longer displays "<Insert1>" in the warning dialog.
  • A bug that caused an error when dragging a folder to another folder in the Reports Explorer was fixed.
  • The Field Properties dialog for a field in a report created in version 3.1 that links to another report now displays the correct link parameter settings. Also, the reports list now shows reports inside folders that have subfolders.
  • The Count button is no longer available in the Exclude dialog.
  • Temporary files created when an error dialog is displayed are now deleted once you close the dialog.
