Version 2.1.3 Released: February 28, 2002


The Posting option has been overhauled to provide more extensive error checking and faster processing. It now contains two functions previously not present. First, prior to actually beginning the posting process, it scans for client skills that no longer are attached to a valid client to clean up records left over from the combining clients bug listed below. Second, you can now request that prior to posting, the dates stored in the case records be scanned to insure that they fall within a specified range of years. It is strongly recommended that when you upgrade to this version, you Clear All Transactions and re-post all Payments, Restitution, and Work Schedules with the option Log to File set so that you can verify that you have the most accurate information possible in your database.

Added check to Work Schedule detail window to verify that any ending date does not preceed start date.

Bug Fixes:

Fixed a problem during a new install that would generate an "Invalid use of Null" error that would prevent completion of the installation.

Fixed Work Schedule Detail's Unpost button to use start date if end date is empty in unposting totals. Previously, the option expected an end date even though the posting process used the start date if the end date was not present. Since the starting and ending dates are used in the posting process, you are no longer allowed to change these fields on a posted schedule.

Fixed bug in Client Type detail that would not let you cancel an update if the client code was already in use elsewhere. Also fixed problem where cursor was not at the first entry field when window was opened.

When pressing F1 for help on Jurisdiction Listing window, help for Fee Payment detail came up instead.

Other Updates:

The Jurisdiction Detail window did not tab to the Active checkbox in the expected order. The checkbox was moved and now follows the County field.

Version 2.1.4 Released: March 11, 2002


The installation process has been updated to allow a new installation to install the databases from the release CD so that it does not have to be set up manually prior to running the application for the first time.

The installation process has been updated to allow a new user to locate the databases on any local or network drive and install them without having to know beforehand where they are located.

Fixed a where clearing the database would clear the current usage record.

Updated the Work Schedule report to correctly get the officer name and title from the fields set up under the Options window.

Version 2.1.5 Released: May 13, 2002

Bug Fix:

The posting process would not report work schedule dates where the end date preceeded the start date and would post the entry when it was complete. The work schedule detail window, however, would not let you unpost the transaction under this circumstance because the dates were bad. Therefore you could never correct the error. This is only a problem for transactions entered prior to version 2.1.3 as they are now tested when entering the dates.

Version 2.2.0 Released: November 20, 2003


Added Receipt Date field to Receipts. table for future speed improvements in reporting.

Bug Fixes:

Fixed bug in Agency Hours Worked Detail that would sometimes generate "Error in database dll" message.

Fixed bug in Case Types List Windows that would allow you to remove a Case Type if it had no code even though Cases were attached to it.
