Stonefield Software Releases New Version 4.3 of Stonefield Query SDK Reporting Software.


Stonefield Software is pleased to announce the release of version 4.3 of the Stonefield Query SDK. Several new features in the latest version.

Orlando, Florida (I-Newswire) December 12, 2012 - Stonefield Software is pleased to announce the release of version 4.3 of the Stonefield Query SDK. Several new features in the latest version.

Report Designer

Now create batch reports. A batch report automatically runs several reports, outputting each to the desired destination. This is handy if, for example, normally run the same three reports at the end of every week. Rather than choosing them one at a time, now create a batch report that combines those three reports and just run it.

Now append the output of a report to an existing Microsoft Excel output file. In that case, the report appears in a new worksheet (tab) within the spreadsheet. This even works if the file is already open in Excel. Now choose XLSX or XLS as the extension for a Microsoft Excel output file.

Turning on the new Start each group on a new page option for the first row field in a cross-tab report causes each group of records to appear on its own page. Now turn on the Output each group as a separate file and Output each group as a separate email settings so each group is output to its own file or email.

The new Delimited - Microsoft Excel Format output type outputs to a comma-separated values (CSV) file but uses Excel formatting so things like leading zeros are preserved when the file is opened in Excel.

Formulas are now stored in the same folder as reports (in a file named CalcFields.DBF) so if the program runs on a workstation but reports are shared on a server, so are the formulas. For backward compatibility, the program will still look for CalcFields in the Data subdirectory of the program folder so it won't lose the formulas, so this works better for new installations rather than existing ones.

Now enter a formatted SQL statement in the SQL Statement step of the Customize Report dialog. For example, carriage returns and tabs are now permitted. This makes it easier to take a SQL statement from another application and paste it into a report's SQL statement.

Microsoft Excel full-format output works better now: the output has a single page header at the top of the document and a single page footer at the bottom rather than header/footer sections where the pages would normally break, and the use of empty columns and rows for positioning is minimized.

Stonefield Query now handles font scripts other than Western, such as Cyrillic or Greek. Select the desired script in the Font dialog that appears when clicking the font button in the Field Properties dialog of a report wizard or in the Advanced Report Designer.

Clicking the Add All or Remove All buttons in Step 2 of the report wizards now display a prompt asking for confirmation if that is what to be done to prevent inadvertently adding all fields in a table to a report or removing all fields from a report.

The application no longer erases the diagnostic log (Diagnostic.txt in the Data subdirectory of the program folder) if KeepLog=Y is in Data.INI. This is useful for checking diagnostics over multiple runs, such as for scheduled reports.

Now resize dashboard windows to a much smaller size than before.

Now edit a chart that's included in a quick report with an advanced layout.

Now by clicking on the serial number in the About dialog (available from the Help menu) to copy the serial number to the clipboard. This makes it easier to enter the serial number when creating a ticket in the online support ticket system.

Studio

Each database can now have its own specific name delimiters (used to delimit table and field names containing spaces, dashes, or other illegal characters) and can be edited with the delimiters in the Database properties page.

The Subtable properties page now has a link to jump to the original table for the subtable.

The new Update Virtual/Subtable to Match Main Table function updates the selected virtual or subtable to have the same fields as the main table the virtual or subtable was created from.

Now specify that certain tables should be handled differently when reading the structure of a database to Stonefield Query Studio by adding a "NoNative" section to SFQuery.INI. This prevents untrappable errors in the MySQL 5.1 driver on specific tables.

Stonefield Query now automatically ignores Oracle system tables when reading the structure of a database.
A new file, FoxTools.FLL, must be distributed with Stonefield Query.
