New Features - 12-2

Welcome to Collect! Version 12.2. This latest version has several new features and functionality, as well as several optimizations and enhancements to existing features.

64 Bit Computing

Collect! now has the ability to run in either 32 bit mode or 64 bit mode. The Collect\bin folder contains the 32 bit version and the Collect\bin64 folder contains the 64 bit version. To use the 64 bit version of Collect! simply set your shortcut to point to Collect\bin64\cv12.exe.

SQL Queries In The Report Writer

The report writer now supports SQL queries in either an array or into a single variable. Examples:

@tvarArray[][] = @SQL(SELECT * FROM &de WHERE &de.mo = 'A'
AND (&de.li BETWEEN '@tsr.fr' AND '@tsr.to') ORDER BY &de.li )

You can then output the array or parse through it to further filter data.

@tvarTotalPaid = @SQL(SELECT SUM(&de.pa) FROM &de JOIN &cl
ON cl_rowid = de_rowid_ client WHERE &de.mo = 'A' AND (&de.li BETWEEN '@tsr.fr' AND '@tsr.to'))

The variable can then be output in the report.

Any reference to the '&' will tell the report writer to use the database table/field name (Ex: &de will return debtor; &de.na will return de_name )

Any reference to the '@' will tell the report writer to use the database values (Ex: @de.fi will return 1400 )
