Version 9.0A | 2011-09-23 (Sep. 23, 11)

    NOTE: This version is NOT compatible with QuickBooks.

    • Multiple Years of History, including transactions, are now supported and can be retrieved from Adagio Ledger 9.0A or higher and from Simply Accounting.

    • Forecasts feature added. Forecasts are similar to Budgets. Use Budgets to hold your original figures and Forecasts for revised budget figures. Both figures are available in the Financial Reporter. Forecasts are retrieved from Adagio Ledger 9.0A or higher.

    • Fully compatible with Windows 7. Supports the scaling text feature on Windows 7 ('Large Fonts').

    • The Adagio log on process has been improved. The user can be identified through their Windows authenticated user ID using the “remember user name” and “remember password” options on the log in dialog. The Previously Opened database list is now saved by Adagio User rather than for all users. The Previously Opened list also displays the date the data was last accessed by the user.

    • The View Transactions/Budgets function has been enhanced. View Account Transactions has Debit and Credit columns instead of one column with positive and negative amounts. The View GL Entry function shows transactions that make up the entry. Forecasts are supported and the Year is selectable on View Budget/Forecast screen.

    • Added Import/Export functions for Net Changes, Budgets, Forecasts, Statistics/Net Changes and Transactions.

    • Excel Direct from the financial reporter and smart finders can be configured to export an ASCII CSV file (instead of sending data direct to Excel) and start an application that automatically opens the file. This allows export when Excel is not installed and provides support for other spreadsheets such as

    • Direct updating of Budget and/or Forecast figures is now possible from within the Financial Reporter. The function =GLUPDATE(spec code, account, amount) allows you to create your budget figures from spreadsheet based calculation amounts derived from your general ledger and write those numbers directly to the budget or forecast “buckets”.

    • A new property, 'Edit On Print', has been added to the context menu when cells are selected. Cells with this property may be changed by a user when a statement is opened in “Print only” mode. For example, this allows a user who is restricted from editing statements by security Group to be able to enter and update budget / forecast figures. Cells marked with this property have a yellow background. The color shows up when viewing the spec but does not appear on Print Preview or when printing to paper.

    • User level departmental restrictions have been significantly improved. Users restricted to specific departments may now add, modify and delete statement groups. Additionally, if they have modify access to a statement, they may make changes and still be restricted to the departments they are authorized to view. Statement groups may be flagged as only being available to the “SYS” user.

    • The cell containing the column specifier in a .ColSpec row can now support multiple values. Drag the values you want available at the top of the column from the “Data View” onto the cell. A drop-down will be created containing all the specification codes selected.

    • Multi-year comparative statements are now supported. Virtually any "code" can take a prefix of the form {n} when n is an integer ( 0 to 9) which indicates a "prior year" relative to the selected year. This means that Y or {0}Y is Current year to date and {1}Y is the prior year, {2}Y is two years prior, etc. and {-1} is next year. You can go back as far as you have data in your database, up to a maximum of 10 years can be reported on at one time.

Version 8.1C | 2010-11-29 (Nov. 29, 10)

  • Compatible with QuickBooks 2010 and QuickBooks Enterprise 10.0 and earlier versions. The Use Class as Department feature will only work reliably with QB Enterprise.

  • Compatible with Simply Accounting 2010.

  • Compatible with Adagio Ledger 9.0B. However, FX only retrieves current and 1 year prior, although Ledger supports multiple prior years. FX 9.0A will support multiple years and will be able to retrieve multiple years from Ledger. Fiscal period 14 in Adagio Ledger 9.0A is added to the last fiscal period in FX to maintain integrity.
