    ·    The finder on the GL Department field is now restricted to the departments for the account selected.

    ·    The GL Department Description is now available to be added to the GL Account finder with the Column Editor.

    ·    When making a department and all associated accounts inactive, any retained earnings accounts in that department are not made inactive. This allows you to make a department inactive to prevent accidental use without having to make retained earnings active in order to run Next Year. Retained earnings accounts with departments must still be active when creating the Next Year, and can be edited manually as needed.

    ·    Empty batches no longer post. If an empty batch is included in a range of batches it is left unposted.

    ·    In Ledger 9.2A and higher, if you were in the View Transactions/Budgets function when batches were posted, the transaction details were not refreshed until you closed and re-entered the function.

    ·    If the Current Balance, Budget or Forecast columns were removed from the View Transactions screen and later re-added without using Reset, when you changed the fiscal period, the column amounts did not refresh the numbers for the selected fiscal period.

    ·    In Ledger 9.2A and higher if the grid was sorted by Department, the Find Transaction function did not locate transactions correctly.

    ·    PurchaseOrders transactions with a vendor document number less than 9 characters did not display the PDF in the View Transactions function.

    ·    In Ledger 9.2B, the Posting Journal did not print entries in the order entered or show on the Batch Listing in some cases.

    ·    After installing Ledger 9.2B (2016.08.10) or SysUpdater (160809), temporary files created on workstations by printing reports were not deleted in some cases, although this did not cause any problems.

    ·    When printing a Report Set containing a posting journal for an empty batch, an error occurred. This could cause an automation job to fail to complete. The error no longer occurs.

    ·    In Ledger 9.2A and higher, the Chart of Accounts report did not and there was an error when the report was previewed.

    ·    In some cases, the sequence for the Provisional Posting Journal was not set properly if Next Year was open.

    ·    Ledger on Adagio Cloud now supports retrieval of batches from third-party applications (for example PayDirt Payroll™) running on the local machine.

    ·    When cloning a company if you changed the fiscal year, posting a batch to a prior year caused data integrity errors.

    ·    Ledger now renders dialogs properly on Ultra High Resolution displays when the font size is anything other than 100% of normal on Windows 8.1 or higher.

    ·    The Data Integrity Check now shows the Account in the error for any orphaned transactions.

    ·    If a user who had Ledger open ran a Data Integrity Check (DIC) after another user had posted a batch and then exited the program, the DIC reported false errors. If Ledger was closed and reopened, the errors are no longer reported.

    ·    Installing the 9.2B (2016.08.10) Service Pack displayed the error “x:\Softrak\Ledger\LedgerFinRep.exe is not a valid previous version and could not be upgraded.” in some cases.

    ·    Station logs had blanks in remote entries if the Adagio application was logged in with a UNC rather than a mapped drive. The Remote Device and Remote Platform entries are now populated in this case.

    ·    Station logs always showed Remote Platform as the generic OS type, usually \\\"Win NT\\\". It now shows the actual server OS, such as “Windows Server 2012 R2”.

    ·    Station logs have new entry Remote OpLocks Setting that shows the Oplocks setting on the server as “Enabled” or “Disabled”. If unable to connect to remote registry it will show \\\"”.

    Enhancements & Revisions in Financial Reporter

    ·    New SmartSheet commands “.Sort”, “.SortCase” and “.SortEnd” are available to sort a section of a financial statement into alphabetical (or some other) order. The sort is case sensitive when “.SortCase” is used. The sort is in ascending order. Place the text “Start” in the column on which the sort is to be performed. Multiple sort blocks in a sheet are supported.

    ·    The new Header/Footer code “$G” is now available to print the UTC date and time in the section. Here is the complete list of supported Header/Footer codes:

      $A - Application (LedgerFinRep.exe)
      $C - Company Name
      $D - Date - can have parameters in {}
      $F - File title
      $G - UTC Date - can have parameters in {}
                        %z is always utc,%Z is always UTC
      $N - Number of pages
      $P - Current page number
      $R - Sheet Name
      $U - User Id
      $V - Filter value
      $X - Path Name
      $Y - Date string - \\\"As of ...\\\"

    ·    Expression Notepad added to improve the entry of complex formulas. Right Button Mouse on a formula cell or double click in the Formula Bar launches the Notepad. Text is entered in a monospace font and multilines are supported.

    ·    Statement Groups now allow you to specify a specific name for the ExcelDirect workbook. Right Mouse Click on the Statement Group name to set the Export name.

    ·    “.ExportSheetName(“name”)” in cell A3 will override the default name for the statement when a workbook is sent to Excel. The string specified in the function can be an expression. This allows you to specifically name each sheet in a workbook when it is sent to Excel.

    ·    The behavior of the Department Selection Combo Box has been significantly improved for sites with a large number of departments.

    ·    Items in the Department View can be re-ordered (moved) using Alt-UpArrow and Alt-DownArrow key presses.

    ·    In the “Specify Fiscal Period” dialog, the Description, Fiscal Start and Fiscal End dates are now displayed.

    ·    The Financial Reporter now records the name of the statement being loaded in the application log (SDAPPLOG).

    ·    The function GLFPE() returned the incorrect ending period date when used with the \\\"BAL\\\" specifier. It now returns the end date of the selected fiscal period. \\\"CURBAL\\\" always returns the last day of the fiscal year.

    ·    Department masks with leading blanks now work correctly.

    ·    When printing a Statement Group for several departments, the order of the statements appeared to be random. The Group will now print in the order selected.

    ·    Specification codes “U”, “PRO” and “ENC” now return the full year value, regardless of the fiscal period selected.

    ·    The “Accounting $$” format now works correctly when the first row(s) of an expanded range are hidden.

    ·    Statement expansion now works reliably when the statement contains user department restrictions.

    ·    Updating budgets when next year was open used to generate a data integrity error in the general ledger. This no longer occurs.

    ·    Choosing “Save as…” for a statement loaded from a Folder other than the Company data now changes the Folder destination to the Company data Folder and the extension of the Statement.

    ·    In Ledger 9.2B, the Batch Status report did not include error batches generated during posting.

    ·    The Batch Status report printed a “phantom” batch from the prior year in rare cases.

    ·    Increased the size of the Description 1 field slightly on the Detail Listing report printed in ‘Condensed’ format.

    ·    Printing a report to ExcelDirect displayed the error “Failed to launch” when Ledger was run over a Remote Desktop Connection.

    ·    If 'ForceCSV' was set in SSI2XL.INI to force output to a CSV file instead of Excel, the message “ExcelDirect failed” was displayed when printing a report to ExcelDirect, although the file was created.

    ·    When browsing folders in import functions in Ledger 9.2B on Windows 8 or 10, a message similar to "GLACCTIM.CSV. This file doesn't exist. Create the file?" was displayed for any folder that did not contain the file specified in the import template. This problem exists in Adagio releases dated (approximately) January 2016 and newer. Installing this release of Ledger will correct the problem in all Adagio modules.

    ·    In Ledger 9.2B, the Export Account Budgets and Export Reallocations functions displayed the error “Error code: 1501 on ToXLSaveWorkbook” if you exported to .xls format instead of .xlsx.

    ·    The program version, date and path are written to the Open Data Set log entry in the Application Log.

    ·    DataCare now maintains the size of the application log (SDAPPLOG) when checking Ledger data, similar to the Data Integrity Check in Ledger and other modules.

    ·    The All Workstation Installer incorrectly created shortcuts in some cases if pre-9.2A versions of Adagio existed, such as creating a Time&Billing shortcut even though that module is not installed.

    ·    Installs a new Adagio Data Source (ADS) that prevents resource locking problems at large Adagio sites running 9.2 versions and improves application performance at these sites.

    NOTE: All third-party applications from Adagio Developer Partners must use the new ADS. You must check with your Adagio consultant or the developer to confirm their application is using ADS 1.12. 66.3503 or higher. Failure to ascertain this risks corrupting data if the application is writing to the Adagio data files concurrently with Adagio modules.

    Enhancements & Revisions in the Financial Reporter

    ·    In the Ledger 9.2B Financial Reporter, the ‘Don’t show this message again’ option on the Watch Me video prompt screen did not work when the Financial Reporter was launched from Ledger. It was not a problem when the Financial Reporter program was launched directly from Windows Explorer or a shortcut.

    ·    In Ledger 9.1A and higher, the ‘Organize by Field’ function opened from the right-click pop-up menu on the View Chart of Accounts window displayed a blank screen rather than a list of Account Master fields.

    ·    In Ledger 9.2B, changes to the Display settings on the Settings tab in View | Customize were not saved.

    ·    Statement Group printing or exporting to Excel Direct had pages by department sorted in an unexpected way, with the All Departments selection. Now pages are sorted as defined on the Statement Group item department list.

    ·    In Ledger 9.2B on Adagio Cloud, if you double-clicked on a file in the Open Financial Statement Template function you received the error “Windows can't open this type of file (.fst).”; although, if you selected the file and clicked the Open button, the template was opened.

    ·    In Ledger 9.2B, leading spaces in Departments were not correctly handled when expanding a statement.

    ·    Printing and Excel Direct Statement Groups now maintain the defined order.

    ·    In Ledger 9.2A and 9.2B, the Account Description on the Details grid drill-down displayed an “A” rather than the description.

    ·    Corrections and improvements made to spec codes: U, PRO, and ENC return full year and period ranges implemented for all V codes. GLTITLE() returns the correct text description.
    V(|B|F|U|PRO|ENC)[(P)Sp:Ep]
    Note that there is nothing allowed after the final ']' and that V* functions are independent of fiscal period.

    ·    The name of a financial statement file opened in the Financial Reporter individually or within a statement group is written to the Application Log.

    ·    Updated for Adagio Cloud.

    ·    Print the Trial Balance and Detail Listing reports to Excel using ExcelDirect. Added an ExcelDirect button and ExcelDirect Options button on the report dialogs. Transactions from the report are exported to Excel using the selected ranges, sorts and options (except subtotals and page breaks). The resulting spreadsheet may be more useful than the export produced using Crystal depending on what you are looking for. Select the new ‘Enable ExcelDirect Print’ option and related settings on the Posting/Reports tab in the Company Profile.

    ·    Added a Find to the Edit Departments function.

    ·    To avoid unbalancing budgets, deleting accounts with budgets or forecasts is no longer permitted from the Edit Accounts function. To delete an account with budgets or forecasts you must now first zero the figures manually.  Purge Fiscal Year with the option ‘Delete Accounts with No Activity?’ selected will consider budgets or forecasts in subsequent years as activity.

    ·    A batch for the last period (12 or 13) set to ‘Auto Reverse’ cannot be posted. If you attempt this the warning “Posting will not proceed because the batch is set to auto reverse and an entry has the last period.” is now displayed.

    ·    The Batch Listing has 2 new warnings:
       11 You cannot reverse entry that is in the last period of the year
       12 You cannot reverse entry to a period that is not open

    ·    Added ExcelDirect buttons to the batches, entries and details grids.

    ·    All Fiscal Period finders now show all 12 (or 13) periods.

    ·    Added an option to print a General Ledger Distribution Summary on the Posting Journals.

    ·    Added a subtotal of Units by period on the GL Detail Listing.

    ·    Added Email Setup function to support Direct email for Adagio Console users, allowing them to use Direct for the EmailPDFLog command in automation batches rather than MAPI, which requires operator input.

    ·    For multicurrency datasets, Import Batches and Import Transactions does not require that Rate type or Rate date be in the import template. These fields will default based on settings in the Company Profile and MultiCurrency data.

    ·    Additional Application Log entries are made by Ledger. The log can be viewed with GridView or Adagio Console.

    ·    The Data Integrity Check has an enhancement to check the next posting sequence and transaction uniquifier in the Company Profile against the posted transaction and posting journal files and attempt rebuild if required.

    ·    GridView view templates for Adagio Ledger have been updated. They are installed in the \Softrak\Ledger\ViewTemplates folder.

    Problems fixed

    ·    In the Edit Departments function in Ledger 9.2A, if you created accounts using the New Department process, selected the Clone Account option but not the ‘Clear budget/forecast figures’ options, selected income accounts that had budgets to clone, integrity errors resulted.

    ·    If ‘Active records only’ was enabled in the Column Editor, the Clear function in Edit Budgets and Edit Forecasts was not clearing amounts if hidden inactive accounts were included in the range of accounts selected.

    ·    In Ledger 9.1A and 9.2A, copying multiple batches to a single new batch created multiple new batches instead.

    ·    Resource locking changes have been made in Ledger and the Financial Reporter. You are no longer restricted from posting batches when the Financial Reporter is open on the same station for a different database. Posting continues to be restricted when the Financial Reporter is open on the same station for the same database. Posting is permitted when the Financial Reporter is open on other stations for the same database.

    ·    Retained Earnings account option, ‘Restrict To Subledgers’, was incorrectly preventing posting batches to Current Year.

    ·    Closing the posting confirmation message with the X in the window title bar posted the batch(es) instead of closing the message.

    ·    In MultiCurrency data in some cases, edits to text fields in revaluation batches caused the Home amount to be recalculated to 0.

    ·    In the View Transactions/Budgets inquiry, when viewing the Budget/Forecast, Fiscal Year dropdown showed every year twice.

    ·    The Posting Journal when printed in detail form and sorted by account now displays the full Description field.

    ·    Printing a Report set to PDF failed when there was a Posting Errors Posting Journal.

    ·    When the Posting Journal report was saved as a Favorite, the Print Error Posting Journal option was always enabled.

    ·    For the %CMP code (Company Name) used by Adagio ePrint for folder names, spaces and other allowable punctuation characters are no longer stripped out.

    ·    In Ledger 9.2A’s Posting Journal report, a date field of 12/31/1899 printed on the G/L Summary.

    ·    The Posting journal in detail form, sorted by Account, with ‘Print Units’, printed a blank line when the second entry description was not blank.

    ·    For multicurrency datasets some totals were not aligned correctly on the Detail Listing report.

    ·    Source currency amounts were incorrectly suppressed in Source and Home Batch Listings, in the G/L Summary.

    ·    The Source Journal Profile Report in Ledger 9.2A printed several Unused sorts in the ‘Sorted by’ column.

    ·    In the Export Transactions function, if you exported a range that did not include any transactions, the message “Error code: 1001 on ToXLAutoFitRange” was displayed instead of a message saying there were no records to export in the range.

    ·    Export of files to Excel format from File | Export functions displayed an error if you had opened the database using a UNC path (for example:
    \MYSERVER\Adagio\SOFTRAK\DATA).

    ·    Export of files to Excel format from File | Export functions did not create the export .xlsx file in some cases if Excel 2013 or higher was open on the stations.

    ·    Automation no longer stops if set to Retrieve by Application when there is no batch to retrieve.

    ·    If the size of text was set higher than 100% on Windows 10, Ledger froze when opened in some cases.

    ·    Corrected problems converting from version 8.1A databases.

    ·    The Data Integrity Check did not include the Adagio Common Files (SD*) when a backup was made prior to rebuilding errors.

    ·    Corrected a problem where, after a workstation install was completed, it cycled requiring another workstation install (sometimes cycling without user intervention). This happened in isolated cases on some workstations for systems where Adagio 9.2A/B modules dated in December 2015 or later were installed for the first time at a site, depending on the workstation environment and/or the order in which upgrades and Service Packs were installed.

    Enhancements in Financial Reporter

    ·    "Pin" fiscal periods and Department choices so that they are applied to every sheet in the financial statement. Click on the push pin to the left of the Fiscal Period selector to have that period used for every sheet in the statement. Click the push pin a second time to revert to fiscal period selections on each sheet. The same operation works for the Department selector.

    Note:     In order to have the push pin appear, you may need to select View | Customize | Settings | Toolbars, and click "Reset" on each toolbar in turn.

    ·    Conditional cell formatting is supported. Highlight the cell you wish to conditionally format and select Format | Conditional Styles. The conditional format formula is entered into the Formula box. The formula is a regular "IF()" function with the name of the Style you want applied if the condition is TRUE and the Style you want applied if the condition is FALSE. Use an empty Style ("") if you want the default formatting applied if the condition is not met.

    The Preview window will show you the contents of the selected cell formatted according to the conditional Style. Until the formula is syntactically correct, the OK button will be disabled, and the Preview window will be blank.

    IF() formulas may be nested. Normal cell references may be used. "#" is used to reference the current cell (as illustrated).

    Conditional Cell Formatting may be Enabled/Disabled for the entire sheet from the Conditional Styles Dialog, or from the Formulas | Conditional Styles menu choice.

    ·    Allow an arbitrary selection of fiscal periods from the currently selected and previous years to sum amounts. Net Changes, Budgets, Forecasts, Statistical Units and Provisionally posted amounts can now be easily summed over arbitrary fiscal periods.

    Previously, a specific period could be included in a Specification Code. For example [11]M would provide the Net Changes for Fiscal Period 11. You can now place starting and ending periods between the []M separated by a colon (":"). For example, [3:5]M would sum the Net Changes to an account for periods 3 to 5.

    The Starting period must be less than the Ending period, unless it is preceded by "P". NET[3:5]M and [3:5]M sum the Net Posted transactions for periods 3 to 5. NET[P10:3]M and [P10:3]M sum the Net Posted transactions from Period 10 in the prior year to period 3 in the currently selected year.

    The following modifiers change the summed value:

       NET    =    Net Changes (assumed if no specifier)
       B
           =    Budgets
       F
            =    Forecasts
       U
           =    Units
       PRO
       =    Provisionally Posted Amounts
       ENC
       =    Encumbrance Amounts

    ·    GLUPDATE() has an optional additional parameter to select the Budget Year to update. "1" updates the previous year's budget figures.

    ·    When drilling down into transactions, the displayed Grid will be banded according to the User Preference settings for color and banding frequency.

    ·    The Financial Reporter status bar now displays Company Name, data path and extension, and the Adagio and Windows user.

    ·    Performance improvements have been made to speed the loading and printing of statements.

    ·    Updated all Financial Reporter specifications in the sample data that used =AD formulas to use .ColSpec. The SuperSpec has a sample for the [n:n] Net Changes. Added new specification GL!CellFormat.sam showing simple cell formatting.

    ·    The financial statement templates have been updated. Use File | Open Template to open one of these basic statement templates provided in the \SOFTRAK\FSDesigner\Templates folder.

    ·    The /t command line parameter is supported when starting the Financial Reporter program directly from a shortcut. This allows you to set a session date in the format of YYYYMMDD.

    ·    The Financial Report now writes to the Application Log when opened and closed. The log can be viewed with GridView or Adagio Console.

    Problems fixed in Financial Reporter

    ·    ExcelDirect no longer includes a trailing decimal point when amounts are rounded to the nearest dollar.

    ·    "Blank" departments are now correctly handled in Statement Groups.

    ·    Revised department descriptions are now correctly loaded in the Financial Reporter when User Department Restrictions are in effect.

    ·    When Users are restricted from printing a Statement Group, that Statement Group will no longer be available to send to Excel from the General Ledger.

    ·    When a Statement Group contained sheets with different paper sizes and orientation, the correct page selections were not done if the Statement was open in the Designer. This has been fixed.

    ·    Print Financial Statements for Sub Groups of a Statement Group printed the incorrect Sub Group in some cases.

    ·    When a new account was added to the chart of accounts, that account would not be reflected on a financial statement until the user collapsed and expanded the statement. This is no longer required when ".AutoUpdate" is specified.

    ·    Hidden rows at the bottom of a statement were not being hidden when exported to Excel.

    ·    Inactive Departments were not suppressed when ‘Skip Inactive Departments’ was set on a Statement Group item with a Custom Range of departments.

    ·    The Save As Template function now requires the template to be saved in the \SOFTRAK\FSDesigner\Templates folder so that will be found by the Open Template function.

    ·    In Ledger 9.2A, posting or unposting batches on a station while the Financial Reporter was open on the same station, at the time as users were in Ledger on other stations, in some cases caused data integrity errors. You can no longer post while the Financial Reporter is open on the same station. If you attempt to post the warning “Financial Reporter is running, you must close it first. Use ALT-TAB to switch to it.” will be displayed.

    ·    In the Edit Departments function in Ledger 9.2A, if you created accounts using the New Department process, selected the Clone Account option but not the ‘Clear budget/forecast figures’ options, selected income accounts that had budgets to clone, integrity errors resulted.

    ·    When adding a range to an Account Group, the warning for overlapped ranges only worked when the duplicated account was equal to either the start or end of the range.

    ·    In Ledger 9.2A, the Detail Listing report did not show Account Net Changes in some cases if the Opening Balance was zero and multiple years were selected for the range.

    ·    In Ledger 9.2A, the GL Detail Listing permits fiscal ranges that span fiscal years. When the report was printed for multiple years for a single account or small range of accounts, it displayed the error “Supporting details are missing.” in some cases, although transactions were not missing.

    ·    In Ledger 9.2A, the Source Journal reports displayed an error similar to “Cannot open file \\\"\DATA\GLxxnnnnR.DAT\\\". The system cannot find the file specified.” on systems with many Windows users (approximately more than 100).

    ·    When the Trial Balance in Ledger 9.2A was printed in Worksheet style, the Debits column printed over the Account Description.

     ·    In Ledger 9.2A, the Posting Journal did not print Comment line types.

    ·    When the Chart of Accounts report in Ledger 9.2A was printed in Profile style, if you printed Optional Fields, dates that are blank in the data printed as 12/31/1899.

    ·    In Ledger 9.2A, the Batch Listings and GL Summary on Posting Journals sorted accounts without departments ahead of other lower account numbers if the account number did not use the full 6 characters.

    ·    On the Detail Listing in Ledger 9.2A, ‘Page break on change of department’ option did not work for a range of a single account.

    ·    In Ledger 9.2A, if while exporting you browsed to any folder other than the data folder where the output file did not already exist and said Yes to create the file, there was an Access Violation error if you did not also include the file extension in the filename.

    ·    The Data Integrity Check in Ledger 9.2A (2015.05.16) no longer reports a warning when a batch is out of balance. DataCare also no longer reports this as an error.

    ·    In Ledger 9.2A (2015.05.16) the auto-workstation install on a new workstation that had not had vitalEsafe installed by a previous install, ran again each time you started Ledger. Note: the vitalEsafe web based file storage service has been discontinued and this function has been removed from Ledger. See the Upgrading section in the Release Notes for further information.

    ·    In Ledger 9.2A, if you tried to edit a batch that was already being edited, an error message was displayed instead of a warning message saying the batch is already open.

    ·    Enhanced resource locking during posting and unpost/recover batch to reduce likelihood of incomplete postings.

    ·    In Ledger 9.1A and higher, Clone Company did not create accounts in the new database if budgets, forecasts and reallocations were all not selected to be copied.

    ·    In Ledger 9.2A, the Detail Listing report did not show Account Net Changes in some cases if the Opening Balance was zero.

    ·    In Ledger 9.2A, GL Detail Listings for specific periods printed when the Next Year was open would report the data was damaged when it was not during the brief window between Close Income/Expense Account and Close Current Fiscal Year.

    ·    In Ledger 9.2A, the Chart of Accounts report printed with the Reallocations option enabled showed zero in the Percentage.

    ·    Changed the GL sample data so that 2007 is current year and 2008 is next year.

    ·    Ships ODBC Connection String utility that can be used to help troubleshoot report problems. Installs OCSTest.exe and ConnectionTesterInfo.pdf in \Softrak\System.

    ·    When starting Adagio 9.2A versions, the Crystal Reports Runtime (used to print reports) intermittently displayed an error such as “The program can't start because TraceLog-4-0.dll is missing from your computer.” when in fact the DLL file was present and reports did print without problem. Installing Ledger 9.2A should correct this for all 9.2A modules.

    ·    The Data Integrity Check (DIC) saves results for the last 9 previous runs in files GLWINERR01..09.dat (where .dat is your company data file extension). The current DIC information will always be in GLWINERR. If you do check/rebuild/check without closing the DIC function the results are appended to the same file.

    Problems fixed in this Service Pack apply to Ledger 9.2A (2014.11.20) unless noted as also being in prior versions.

    Ledger 9.2A was a major release with many new features and problems fixed. Review the Release Notes for 9.2A (2014.11.20) or the Readme help for details.

    ·    The Column Editor screen can be sized. The size is remembered by module on the workstation.

    ·    An Account could be created with a blank in the Account Code field if both 'Mandatory Account Groups' and 'Enforce Account Groups Range' were disabled in the Company Profile. This occurred if you entered a Department and a Description but left the Account Code blank and saved.

    ·    An error was displayed if you viewed an Account Group before adding a range for it on a newly created database.

    ·    Find Account / Department in Maintain and View Accounts was applying the account code formatting (if set in the Company Profile) to the Department field.

    ·    When posting to an account set to post consolidated, the consolidated total in the posting journal file record was set to the amount of just the first transaction (the total in the posted transaction file record was correct). This caused the total for the account on the Posting Journal report to be incorrect.

    ·    Double-sided report printing did not work in Ledger 9.2A PrintTool 9.2A (2014.11.22).

    ·    The Report Balance on the Detail Listing was incorrect when the report was printed for just the Retained Earnings account.

    ·    When printing a Detail Listing across multiple fiscal years, in some cases extra transactions for Income Statement Accounts would print with the description ‘Details Missing’.

    ·    When printing a Detail Listing across multiple fiscal years, for the last account printed, details were missing and in some cases extra transactions were printed instead.

    ·    The Detail Listing report title now shows “Listing calculated from” followed by the starting and ending year and period in the format “YYYY-PD”. The dates are also shown in the format MMM DD YYYY on the second line of the report title.

    ·    The Detail Listing printed in Condensed format did not break out the closing entries by year.

    ·    While the Print Preview window was open it used 100% of the available cycles for one CPU when that CPU was not being used for other tasks by the OS. While this did not actually reduce performance on the machine, it depleted battery charge on laptops if the preview was left open.

    ·    New export templates created for Excel format default the file extension to .XLXS rather than .XLS as in prior versions.

    ·    Account Description fields were added to the Export Net Changes and Export Statistics functions for Ledger 9.2A.

    ·    When the All Workstation install included with Ledger 9.2A was used to install other pre-9.2A modules, it did not install some files required to print reports in those modules. This caused problems printing reports on stations that had never run any Adagio versions prior to installing Ledger 9.2A.

    ·    The System Status function (chksys) and its Snapshot function have been improved.

    ·    When Adagio 9.2A programs are started, additional checking of the reporting environment is performed, including the ODBC drivers and related settings.

    ·    The Ledger install does additional checking of the install packages downloaded the first time an Adagio 9.2A module is installed at a site. It attempts to re-download the packages in certain cases and the messages displayed in the case of problems have been improved.

    Financial Reporter

    ·    The hidden rows (Hide When Printed) at the bottom of a financial statement were not being hidden when exported to Excel in prior versions.

    ·    In Ledger 9.1A and 9.2A (2014.11.20), for financial statements with multiple sheets, QuerySheet had screen refresh problems or caused a crash.

    ·    Fixed a problem in the Financial Reporter where the Departmental print would lose the font in some cases.

Release Notes
Print This

    The changes and improvements to Adagio Ledger with this release are significant. To make it easier to review the various changes that have been made, we have grouped them by function in this release note. The Financial Reporter features and fixes are below, listed separately from General Ledger.

    General Features

    ·    You can now start other Adagio modules from toolbar buttons showing the icon for the module. This allows easy switching between Adagio modules. If a module is running against the same company data, Adagio will now just switch to that running instance, rather than launching a second instance. Toolbar buttons can be rearranged under File | User preferences, or by dragging the buttons around or off the toolbar itself.

    ·    Adagio Ledger now logs user activity within the module, including login, menu choices and batch New, Edit, Copy, Delete and Post. Audit logs may be viewed with GridView.

    ·    The Edit Accounts, View Accounts, Edit Forecasts and Edit Account History grids now display the total number of records, as well as a count of the displayed records when a Filter is active.

    ·    Account Filters can now be displayed in Style Priority sequence. Added ‘Display Priority’ field to the grid in the Edit Account Filters function. This makes it easier to tell the sequence in which Styles will be applied. The setting of the sort option is saved by user.

    ·    Grids may be “banded” with a User Selectable color and banding frequency set under File | User Preferences. Filter Styles may be disabled and replaced with regular banding if desired

     


    ·    Added an Ignore Style Color button on the Edit Accounts and other edit grids. Click this button to toggle the grid between no color and Style colors or no color and banding (if it is enabled in User Preferences). Edit Styles and Edit Filters grids always display with Style colors.

    ·    The status bar at the bottom of the main window now shows activity of various steps when the program is starting up and the database is opening.

    ·    Added a Status button to the toolbar for the Batch Status Inquiry.

    ·    Added Filter criteria 'Before today' and 'After today' for Floating Date Range.

    ·    Added several new Ledger specific Styles for use in Filters.

    ·    Updated splash screen with new Adagio logo and colors. Updated icon and toolbar button images.

    ·    Updated sample data including subledgers to demonstrate new features in Ledger 9.2A and changed the Fiscal Year from 2007 to 2008.

    ·    The System Status function (chksys.exe) will now examine existing references to the Adagio area (such as Adagio System Drive, Reports Tables Drive, etc.) and attempt to check that the corresponding UNCs all refer to the same server. If not, it will provide a warning and details of all such references in the Status.txt file and the Detail portion of the screen. This is to try to identify server-reference issues if an entire Softrak folder area has been copied to another server (which violates recommended practices – modules should always be reinstalled on the new server). It does not guarantee integrity of such a move; it only assists in identifying possible issues.

    Edit Functions

    ·    Account Groups can now be added to the Account Group table. A warning will be displayed that changes to this table will necessitate edits to the basic default Balance Sheet and Income Statement included with the financial reporter, but you can now create ranges for specific Due to/Due from and clearing accounts.

    ·    Implied decimal functionality is now disabled during budget and forecast data entry. A message is displayed saying “Implied decimal is disabled for this function.” The warning can disabled by ticking the ‘Don’t show this message again’ option on the dialog.

    Inquiries

    ·    When viewing the details of a transaction, you can display the PDF of the form that created the transaction if Adagio ePrint is installed and the PDF is available.

    ·    Added ExcelDirect to the Batch Status Inquiry grid.

    ·    The View Transactions | Budgets, you can now place the YTD Budget or Forecast totals, or the Budget / Forecast figure for any specific period on the account selection grid.

    ·    The 'Display period N only' option on the View Account Transaction screen has been moved from below the grid to above the grid to make it more prominent.

    Retrieve

    ·    Retrieve transactions from subledgers now allows the creation of multiple batches by either Posting Sequence or subledger batch within the general ledger. This allows automatic creation of a general ledger batch for each batch posted in a subledger, or for each posting run performed. Note: the new options do not separate batches in some cases for current versions of some modules as of the date of this release of Ledger 9.2A. See the Upgrading section below.

    ·    The Fiscal Year and Period are now hidden unless the “Specific period” option is selected.

    Batch Entry and Posting

    ·    You can now post transactions while you or another user have View Transactions or Financial Reporter open.

    ·    The Posted Transactions file structure has changed from a sorted sequential file to an indexed file. The new structure allows immediate viewing of entries in the View Transaction/Budgets function and in drill-down within the Financial Reporter at any time. The option 'Auto build TX inquiry index' added for 9.1A is no longer needed and has been removed.

    ·    Individual entries can now be inserted into the middle of a batch by pressing the Insert key on the transaction you want to appear after the newly inserted transaction (so you can insert a transaction at the beginning of a batch).

    ·    The Batch Control grid for Current, Archive and Next Year batches can now be displayed in Description as well as batch number sequence. The option is saved by user by company.

    ·    Added ‘Remember Account/Dept’ option to the Batch Options tab in the Company Profile. Enable it to remember the account and department (if used) codes entered on the prior detail to speed entry.

    ·    Restore and Add/Edit/Delete options for Archive batches can now be set separately in Security Groups. This can be used to allow a user to restore but not edit Archive batches.

    ·    A security option has been added to allow users to mark batches “Ready to Post”.

    ·    In previous versions of Ledger, there was only one posting sequence allowed at a time for the Unpost Batch journal. To be able to Unpost a second batch, the first journal had to be printed and purged. You can now have multiple Unpost sequences. Unpost journals can no longer be purged when printed and instead are purged at year end the same as other posting journals. A Posting Sequence field has been added to the Posting Journal.

    ·    Adagio ePrint users can now use %PJN code to embed the posting sequence in the Unpost Journal to prevent overwriting one sequence with another when printing to PDF.

    Reports

    ·    Adagio Ledger’s standard reports are now created using Crystal Reports 2013, replacing the Crystal Reports 8.5 Print Engine (CRPE32.dll). The module’s management reports are now stored in \Softrak\Ledger\StandardReports. Revisions to these reports should be placed in \Softrak\Ledger\ModifiedReports.  Custom reports to be added to the Reports menu should be stored in \Softrak\Ledger\CustomReports. Reports must be edited or created using Crystal Reports 2011 or 2013 and Adagio ODBC for access to the data files. Users will notice minor changes to some of the visual elements in the module and a new Print Preview window. The size and position of the Print Preview window are now remembered between sessions by user, so the Workstation options controlling this function have been removed. Exporting to an Excel spreadsheet from the print preview window has been significantly improved. Refer to the online Crystal help for details. The Report Tables Drive settings and Crystal tables in the \QRASP folder are not used by version 9.2A modules.

    ·    An updated version of Adagio PrintTool (PT) is installed in \Softrak\PrintTool. PT allows you to print / preview custom reports without needing to run Crystal Reports itself or without placing the report on the Custom Reports menu in an Adagio module, and allows reports to be placed on the Windows desktop. PrintTool 9.2A prints custom reports created with Crystal Reports 2011 or 2013 only. Adagio ODBC must be installed to create custom reports but is not required to print custom reports. Your Adagio dealer or consultant can create custom reports for you and deploy them at your site. Note: PT does not print reports created with Crystal Reports 8.5 for Adagio. Existing version 8.5 custom reports must be converted before they can be printed by 9.2A. PT allows you to specify a report to print on the command line using the /r parameter. This allows Adagio automation batches to print custom reports (to printer – a future release of PT will allow automation batches to print custom reports to PDF). PT does not require registration with Softrak Systems but does use Adagio Lanpak licenses.

    ·    The GL Detail Listing now permits fiscal ranges that span fiscal years. The report will print on a single page if only one account is listed. The ‘Curr. Year/prev period only’ option prints details for the period immediately prior to the login session date. This is useful as a report favorite to ensure the report is always based on the session date, even if the session date is in the next fiscal year. The ‘Hide transaction details’ option suppresses the individual transactions from being listed on the report if desired to just print out the net change amounts between periods. The ‘Include closing amounts’ option includes the closing amounts on any report that includes period 12 (or 13). This option is only available if the last period is included in the range.

    ·    The Unpost Journal report now supports all the standard posting journal report options, such as: Print a specific or range of sequences, Print just the last posting sequence, and Sort by posting sequence or account (detail or summary).

    Import/Export

    ·    Import templates for Excel file format now default the import file extension to .xlsx.

    Problems Fixed

    ·    Fixed a date field refresh problem in the 'Inquiry on Budget for' section in Edit Budget Data.

    ·    The Import Accounts function did not get a validation error when the import record had the wrong Account Type if the ‘Mandatory Account Groups’ was enabled in the Company Profile.

    ·    Workstation Options listed specific printers in reverse alphabetical order.

    ·    The size and position of Edit Account window were not remembered.

    ·    You can now select the 'Delete accounts with no activity' option from Purge Fiscal Year, and not have to select any of the other options to purge any data. This allows you to delete these accounts without having to purge an entire year.

    ·    In Ledger 9.1A, importing a Retained Earnings account immediately before an Income account caused an error.

    ·    When posting batches using automation, if the 'Require batch print before posting?' option was enabled, batches that had not been printed caused the automation job to fail and no batches were posted. Batches that have been printed are now posted, unprinted batches are skipped, and the automation job does not fail.

    ·    When a batch originating from a subledger and having comment lines is provisionally posted the Provisional Posting Journal had extra blank lines.

    ·    If a user tried to post batches to Prior Year when the batch was open the error “Format '%s' invalid or incompatible with argument” was displayed.

    ·    Ledger 9.1A did not remember the correct size when opened if the window had been maximized.

    ·    The Retained Earnings account set in the Company Profile or on a Department can no longer be an inactive account.   If it was made inactive, there are new warnings in the Data integrity Check.  Next Year cannot be created until the Retained Earnings accounts are active.  If Next Year had been created prior to making the retained earnings account inactive, in a prior version, new postings to income or expense accounts will fail.

    ·    When printing Favorite reports, the Current year/period and Prior year/period options now respect the login date when it falls in the Next Fiscal Year.

    ·    When non-contiguous batches were selected in the Batch Status Inquiry an error was displayed when you printed in the Posting Journal. Print PJ and Listing buttons are now disabled when a non-contiguous selection of batches has been made.

    ·    When the Multi Currency Detail Listing was printed in Source and Home a balance was shown under Home even when there were no details for the period.

    Enhancements in Financial Reporter

    ·    You can now open the Financial Reporter from its own shortcut. The usual command line parameters are available. The Financial Reporter must be started with the /a parameter to show the Symbol column in the Account Data view. Therefore it should always be run from a shortcut if being run independent of Ledger. The shortcut needs to have /a in the Target field (\Softrak\Ledger\LedgerFinRep.EXE). You can only launch the Financial Reporter once Adagio Ledger has been registered. Opening the program directly consumes a lanpak. The financial reporter will respect security settings set in Ledger.

    ·    New toolbar buttons have been added to generate double underlines and fixed position dollar signs (“$”) for dollar amounts. Another formatting button will format a cell as a date. To display the new buttons, select View | Customize | Toolbars | Reset for each of your toolbars.

    ·    You can mark a column “Auto-hide” which will cause the column to be automatically hidden if all the amounts in the column are 0.00. Choose the option from the pop-up context menu when a column is selected.

    ·    Arbitrary departments can now be grouped together as a Department List. From the View | Departments panel, select the departments you wish to group using ctrl-click. Right mouse button and select “Create department List” from the pop-up context menu. Verify that the correct departments are selected, give the list of departments a meaningful name and select “Ok”. The Department List will appear in the list of departments you may choose from the Toolbar.

    ·    Department Custom Ranges can be created in Statement Groups. Specifying a Custom Range results in the chosen statement being printed for each individual department found in the range.

    ·    Statement Groups can now be separated into sections, making it easier to organize them. In Adagio Ledger, you can select either the top level name to print all the statements in a group or select an individual statement group for printing. While duplicate group names are permitted, only the first group with a duplicate name will be accessible from the general ledger. Cut / Copy and Paste as Subgroup are available on the pop-up context menu to manage subgroups in the Statement Group View. An item in a Statement Group can now be opened with its default settings from the pop-up context menu in the Statement Group View. Set the default Open behavior by ctrl-left clicking on the option you want.

    ·    The entire financial statement is now calculated when it is loaded. This will result in longer load times for large statements, but means that the entire statement can be scrolled through without delays as cells are recalculated.

    ·    The field “Amt – Source” has been made available for display in the transaction drill down.

    ·    The financial reporter will now autosave a statement if you have been working on it for a long time. Set the Autosave frequency under View | Customize | Settings.

    ·    The Most Recently Accessed File List is now managed by user, by company. Opening or Printing a Statement Group does not added the referenced statements to the Most Recently Accessed list.

    ·    Inactive departments can now be suppressed from the View | Department pane.

    ·    Inactive accounts are now managed the same way as in Ledger. They will be suppressed if they have no balance or have no transactions posted in the fiscal year being printed. Otherwise, they will continue to be available to print.

    ·    When the Financial Reporter is opened after installing an upgrade, a dialog is displayed with a link to a short video highlighting the new features. The dialog is displayed for each user until they tick 'Don't show this message again'. The video can also be viewed anytime by visiting the Softrak website. Note: the dialog also appears when Adagio is installed at a new site.

    Problems Fixed

    ·    “.RangeDept” now properly selects the expected accounts in the range.

    ·    “Fit to page” now works more reliably.

    ·    “Zero suppress” row now works more reliably when other formats are applied to the row. “FormatHidden” now works more reliably.

    ·    The Financial Reporter is now more tolerant of damaged files.

    ·    The “Ignore Inactive” button is now disabled if there are no Inactive Accounts in the general ledger.

    ·    Drill-down now correctly displays all the referenced accounts when complex account ranges include “*” and “`” in the department range.

    ·    The “Extra FP Quarter” option in the Company profile is now respected.

     

    ·    Regional formatting of numbers is now respected on the export to Excel.

    Enhancements and revisions in Adagio Ledger 9.1A (2014.02.21)

       The Retained Earnings account could not be set and the Company Profile change saved, in some cases, if Auto-fill option is or had been on.

       After canceling an edit in batch entry, the Cancel button incorrectly maintained the default, leading to potential loss of the next entry made.

       If the 'Default Ready to Post' option is on in the Company Profile, when the spacebar was pressed on the batch grid the prompt to mark the selected batch(es) Ready to Post displayed when it should not have. If you then marked the batch(es) not ready, and you also ticked the option 'Don't show this message again' on the prompt, the batch(es) could not be posted.

       If a Retained Earnings account was single currency in a multicurrency database, you could not post an Income account entry in source currency for an Entered batch. An error was displayed and an error batch was created.

       The option 'By department' was missing in the Edit Account Budget function in Ledger 9.1A if Filters were enabled on the grid but the filter itself was blank.

       The 'Acct Description' field could be added to the View Account Transactions window but was always blank in Ledger 9.1A.

       Added Account Group as the last field in the Accounts Default Import and Export Templates. This encourages the use of Account Groups and solved a problem where if you imported accounts in sample data, the import failed because Account Group is missing.

       Import Accounts now displays an error during import if the Account Type doesn't match the type associated with the Account Group when the 'Enforce Account Groups' option is enabled in the Company Profile.

       When importing Source Currencies to update only the Revaluation information, the Net Change values are now correctly ignored and not changed to zero for Current Year and Next Year.

       The 'Allow post journal purge' option in the Company Profile was removed in Ledger 9.1A to avoid accidental clearing. However, when a new database was created, this option was enabled and could not be turned off. This caused Ledger to prompt you to Print and Clear posting journals and the batch status after the current year was closed in some cases.

       The Next Year Posting Journal was not empty when Next Year was created if there had been an improper restore procedure (all GL data files were not deleted before restoring). The Create Next Fiscal Year function now checks for and corrects this condition.

       The Change Fiscal Year function was not purging the Provisional Posting Journal. If this occurred the Provisional Posting could not be printed for sequence 1 (only) after provisionally posting.

       The Trial Balance for Report Style of Provisional Worksheet, with ‘Exclude Zero Balance Accounts’, was incorrectly suppressing accounts when the Provisional Balance for the account was zero. This report has been changed to suppress an account when the balance is zero before and after provisional posting. The Trial Balance for Report Styles of Worksheet or Report, with ‘Exclude Zero Balance Accounts’, and ‘Provisional Postings’ set to ‘Separately From Balance’ was incorrectly suppressing accounts if the balance prior to the provisional posting was zero, and it was not suppressing accounts that were zero after the provisional posting. The ‘Exclude Zero Balance Accounts’ option may have caused Report Totals and Net Income for Accounts Listed to be incorrect.

       The Detail Listing report did not print the opening balance for Retained Earnings accounts when printed in 'Source and home' format.

       In Ledger 9.1A when a new database was created, it contained integrity errors.

       The number of Previously Opened databases was increased from 25 to 100 per user in Ledger 9.1A but this was not working.

       Some minor fixes have been made to Automation in Ledger.

       Installs an updated Ledger DataCare DLL compatible with Adagio xConsole.

    Enhancements and revisions in Adagio Ledger 9.1A (2013.07.26)

       Added GL!BudgetUpdateNY.SAM for use when updating Next Year amounts, rather than current year.

       In Ledger 9.1A (2013.05.23), the Ledger program lost the focus when the View Account Transactions inquiry screen was closed.

       Corrected problems with the Find and Transactions functions when the grid in the View Transactions/Budgets function was sorted by Department in Ledger 9.1A (2013.05.23).

       If you viewed several batches from the Batch Inquiry function in Ledger 9.1A (2013.05.23) the error "Critical Error: [3000] too many open windows" was displayed, even though you had closed all the view batch screens.

    Financial Reporter

       The drill down to the Entry Details for a transaction now includes the Account, Department and Description fields on the grid.

       Import Workbook was not working in Ledger 9.1A (2013.05.23).

       In Ledger 9.1A (2013.05.23), Undo and Redo after editing a formula placed an apostrophe before the formula, changing it to text.

       The FIND function now returns zero rather error if nothing is found.

       In Ledger 9.1A (2013.05.23), copy from the formula field on the toolbar was copying the value rather than the text of the formula.

       In Ledger 9.1A (2013.05.23), Print Report Set with financial statement group crashed the Financial Reporter in some cases if a statement used the 'Fit columns to Page' option.

    Enhancements and revisions in Adagio Ledger 9.1A (2013.05.23)

    The changes and improvements to Adagio Ledger with this release are significant. To make it easier to review the various changes that have been made, we have grouped them by function in this release note. The Financial Reporter changes and improvements are listed below, separately from General Ledger.

    Inquiries

       The View Batch Status function now includes the ability to View batches (both open and posted, with multi-select). It also allows you to print Batch Listings (both open and posted, with multi-select), print Posting Journals (open and printed, with multi-select), and Recover posted batches (with multi-select).

       Added the ability to find transactions in the View Transactions function. The Find Trans button opens a screen allowing selection of a fiscal year and within that to pick a Batch, Entry and Detail #. The smart finder is used to search all transactions within that fiscal year. Selecting from the smart finder result positions to the desired transaction in the grid.

       Ledger now maintains an index into the posted transactions file that allows the full Entry Details for a transaction to be shown immediately in the View Transactions function. In previous versions, each user had to click the 'View GL Entry' button each time they used View Transactions to view entry details, then wait while the program generated an index. There is a new option 'Auto build TX inquiry index' on the Posting/Report tab in the Company Profile. If this option is on, the index is generated after posting batches, allowing immediate viewing of entries the next time you use the function. This option is defaulted on when converting from prior versions. Having the option on may significantly increase the time taken to post batches. For very large databases on a network drive, or if you often post several batches individually, you may want to set the option to off. When the option is off, the index is deleted by posting and generated when you open the View Transactions function if batches have been posted since the last time the function was used. Set the option to on if generation of the index is fast enough or you are prepared to wait for a longer post time in lieu of waiting when you wish to view entry details, otherwise set it off. The index is available to all users, whereas in previous versions, each user had to wait for an index to be built for them after clicking 'View GL Entry'.

       The View Entry Details grid has been moved from a separate window opened by the 'View GL Entry' button, to the Account screen, allowing this information to be viewed immediately whenever a transaction is viewed.

       When viewing transactions, the application name is shown beside the 2 character Application (source) code. For example, "Adagio OrderEntry" is shown for "OE".

    Edit Accounts

       You can now restrict posting to an account by subledger(s). Click the new option 'Restrict to subledger' in the Edit Account function. A new tab will display. On this tab, select the sub-ledgers that are allowed to be posted to the account. The list includes Ledger itself. Batch entry warns you if you create an entry that is not permitted and the entry cannot be saved. Posting to the account is prevented if the restriction is make after the fact and an error batch will be created. Note: Entry and posting is not prevented in the sub-ledgers, only in Ledger itself.

       The format and entry of Account (and Department) codes can be controlled by several new options on the Options tab in the Company Profile. ‘Uppercase account codes?’ forces all codes to upper case. ‘Auto-fill account codes?' allows you to set all account codes to the same length by automatically filling the entry field to the specified length. The fill character can be specified. An account code format can be used to make sure that new account codes conform to a company standard. The valid characters may include:

          A      Uppercase alphabetic only “A-Z”
          a      Upper or lowercase alphabetic only “A-Z, a-z”
          B      Uppercase alphabetic only “A-Z” and blank
          b      Upper or lowercase alphabetic only “A-Z, a-z” and blank
          9      Numeric only “0-9”
          N      Uppercase alphanumeric only “0-9, A-Z”
          n      Upper or lower case alphanumeric only “0-9, A-Z, a-z”
          S      Uppercase alphanumeric only “0-9, A-Z” and blank
          s      Upper or lower case alphanumeric only “0-9, A-Z, a-z” and blank
          .       (period) Any case alphanumeric and “! - / ”
          ~     (tilde) Any printable
          _      (blank) for leading spaces

       If you add an account that is likely set to the wrong type accidentally, for example adding a Balance Sheet account in the range of Income accounts, the warning "The account type of the previous and next acct/dept is different. Do you want to proceed?" is displayed. Note: If the Enforce Account Group Range option is on then it prevents you from doing this in the first place.

       Added Excel Direct to the grid in the Edit Departments function.

    Batch Entry and Posting

       When copying a batch you can now revise the batch name, saving you from having to rename it after copying.

       You can now post to any year in the fiscal calendar that is open, rather than only to the 2 most recent years (either Current Year and Prior Year, or Next Year and Current Year). For example, this allows you to post an auditor's adjustments to the Prior Year after you have created the Next Fiscal Year. The 'To Prior Year' posting function is always available (provided it is enabled in the Company Profile). The fiscal year is now a drop-down field on the Posting dialog, showing all available years. Warnings are displayed if you post to a year more than 1 year prior to the current year.

       The Spacebar now toggles the Ready to Post status on the batch grid.

       Added the option 'Don't show this message again' on the confirming message when batches are set Read to Post, or Not Read to Post.

    Maintenance / Retrieve

       Added the option 'Discard $0.00 trx' to the Retrieve Subledger Batches function. Set this option to discard zero amount transactions.

       The original 'Recover' batches functionality was to be able to restore a deleted or posted Current Year batch, with no options for affecting the new batch. The Recover batch process now available within Batch Status inquiry allows for many different options for updating the batch, including reversing the entries.

       The Purge Fiscal Year function now optionally removes accounts and departments that are no longer required after the fiscal year has been purged. In order for accounts to be deleted, the Opening Balance, Current Balance and Total Net Changes must be zero, and there must be no posted transactions for the account. Deleted accounts are logged in the Application Log, which lists deleted master records from all Adagio modules, and can be viewed with GridView.

    Reports

       A 'Report set' button has been added to the toolbar.

       Posting Journals can no longer be cleared after printing. This avoid accidental clearing (and there are no performance or space issues related to saving them). Posting Journals are cleared at year end. The 'Allow purge posting journal' option has been removed from the Company Profile.

       Batch status information can no longer be cleared after printing the Batch Status report. Doing so prevents un-posting, reversing and recovering batches. Batch Status is cleared at year end.

       Added the option 'Summarize by account' to the Trial Balance report. This prints one line for each account rather than one line for each Account / Department.

       You can now create a Favorite report for posting journals even when there is nothing to print.

       Added the %FPD option (Fiscal Period) for the Trial Balance and Detail Listing Report Favorite filenames for Adagio ePrint users.

       The legend line "e: Retrieved batch was edited." is now printed at the bottom of the Batch Listing report if you have edited entries in a retrieved batch and an 'e' appears beside the total for any entries. This avoids any confusion that such entries are in error.

       When the GL Detail Listing is printed with the 'Page break on change of account' option enabled, the grand totals are printed on a separate page.

    Data Integrity Checker

       The Data Integrity Check now reports an error if an account has the multi-currency option on but the database is not multi-currency. This error caused problems when the Close Income/ Expense Account function was run.

       The Data Integrity Check now detects a damaged fiscal calendar.

    General New Features

       The Ledger program icon is more consistent with the look of other Adagio icons and the size of the "gl" letters has increased, making the icon easier to recognize at a glance.

       New splash screen with an updated look.

       In earlier releases of Adagio we added the ability for Excel Direct to create a CSV file for use by other spreadsheet applications, such as Apache OpenOfficeTM Calc, for sites that did not have Excel installed. The spreadsheet program was launched and opened the CSV file created. Excel Direct can now use Windows "automation" (inter-process communication) to send data to other spreadsheet applications, the same way it interfaces to Excel, allowing all formatting to be retained in the resulting sheet. OpenOffice 3.3 or later and LibreOffice® 3.3 or later are supported. This interface must be manually enabled. The file SSI2XL.INI must exist in \softrak\system and must contain the section [Initialization] with an entry <computer name>-UseOpenOffice=1, where <computer name> is the name of the machine that this entry references. Refer to the Readme Help for further details.

       The Help | About function now has a Consultant tab showing the contact information for your Adagio consultant if they have enabled this option at your site. In addition, the About screen has been redesigned and includes a link to a documentation page for the module that shows New Features, What's New video and manuals.

       When Ledger is opened after installing an upgrade, a dialog is displayed with a link to a short video highlighting the new features. The dialog is displayed for each user until they tick 'Don't show this message again'. The video also be viewed anytime by visiting the Softrak website. Note: the dialog also appears when Adagio is installed at a new site.

       The Adagio menu now includes Ledger, allowing you to quickly open another instance of the program.

       The F1 key now launches Help when no windows are open.

       When sites with Adagio ePrint sign on to a new dataset for the first time, the question "Do you want to turn on Allow PDF printing for this dataset, and enable PDF Printing for all users? is now asked.

       The Open Data screen can be sized horizontally to allow you to see the full data path.

       The number of Previously Opened databases (saved by user) has been increased from 25 to 100.

       The warning message "New date is more than one week later than old date. Accept new date?" on login now has the option 'Don't show this message again'.

       The session date is now passed to GridView views (workspaces) loaded from the Inquiries menu.

    Problems Fixed

       Editing a batch that has a mismatching amounts error, where the sum of the details do not equal the total on the batch header or the batch control, now displays a warning dialog that allows you to correct the mismatching amounts. The Batch Listing report also detects these problems.

       When copying a batch that originated in Purchase Orders, the 'Recalculate period based on date' option did not work if batch contained comment lines.

       When a batch was Unposted and the option 'Delete entries from posted?' was selected, the units were not increased/decreased by the unposting.

       If a Retained Earnings account is set to post in 'Specified Currencies' and Next Year is open, posting a batch in the current year in a new currency will not be permitted until retained earnings is updated.

       In the Edit Budgets and Edit Forecasts functions, when a filter was applied to restrict the accounts on the grid and the 'Account/department sequence' option was used, if you clicked the 'By Department' option the underlying account grid repositioned to the end, thereby breaking the sequence for editing.

       Corrected a problem displaying the grid showing the periods in the Edit Account Budgets function, that occurred in some cases where a period became missing when the Next button was clicked.

       The Alt-X key (vs. clicking the Excel Direct button) exported the grid contents to Excel even if user security prevented it.

       On the Batch Listing report in Ledger 9.0D, when the 'Show Description' option was set to 'Primary', the Description 1 field partially wrapped onto the next line if was too long to fit in the available space on the report.

       Printing a Report Set containing a statement group caused the program to hang if you had the Financial Reporter open.

       If a fiscal year end is changed and a new fiscal year created, (e.g. 2012A), the title on the Trial Balance report did not print the "A".

       When the Trial Balance was printed with the option 'Exclude zero balance accounts' (added for Ledger 9.0D), if an account had a zero balance prior to provisionally posting it was suppressed when it should not have been.  Note: if a provisional posting to an account that had a balance makes the new balance for that account zero, then the account will be suppressed.

       The Batch Listing Report was remembering the range of Starting and Ending dates. They are no longer remembered, and instead are defaulted to Jan 1, 1980 and Dec 31 of the year 10 years from today.

       In Ledger 9.0D, the Report Balance on the Detail Listing report was not zero in some cases.

       When the Posting Journal was printed in 'Source and home' format, sorted by Account, any comment lines were printed at the top of the report instead of being suppressed.

       The report filename codes (ex. %FYR) were not being saved in report favorites.

       Import templates for Budgets, Forecasts, Net Changes, Statistics, and Source Currencies, no longer have the 'Add new records' option available because you cannot add new amounts to non-existent accounts.

       The Import batch function now detects multi-decimal amounts in Excel import files (incorrect amounts that should only have been 2 decimal) that previously caused rounding and data integrity errors.

       The First Date field in the G/L Batch Control File was always blank when shown on the grid in the Batch Status function or in GridView.

       When the Data Integrity Check reported an out of balance error in a batch, the error message had the debit and credit amounts backwards in some cases.

       Installs an updated version of the Adagio Data Source (ADS) that corrects the OpLocks Setting shown in station log files <computer name>.log in \Softrak\System\StationLogs. It was reported as Enabled instead of Disabled in some cases.

    Financial Reporter

    New Features

       You can drill down to the Entry Details for a transaction, showing both sides of the entry (unless consolidated).

       Added new 'Value’ codes in the Account Data tree for many Groups. They output amounts without considering the fiscal period.

       Added an optional Update parameter "U" to QUERYSHEET. It causes target sheet to be set to the fiscal period, department and year that was passed in. For example: QUERYSHEET(S, C [, F [, D [, Y[,U]) - if Update U is not zero set sheet S to the optional parameters F, D and Y. Note: sheet S cannot not have .AutoUpdate in cell A2.

       Added new functions CURRENTFISCALYEAR(), NEXTCREATED(), NEXTFISCALYEAR(), and PRIORFISCALYEAR() to the right-mouse context menu under Insert Formula, Fiscal Information.

       Added ‘Paste Format' and 'Clear Formatting' buttons to the toolbar. Use Copy and 'Paste Format' to copy the format without the content. Also added 'Past Formatting from Cell' (Alt-V) and Clear Formatting (Alt-DEL) to the Edit menu, and same choices on the right-mouse menu on a cell. You need to reset your toolbars after upgrading to show the new buttons. To do this, go to View | Customize, Toolbars tab, select Edit in the list and click the Reset button.

       A 'Reset' option has been added to View | Properties to restore the original program values.

       ExcelDirect now supports the Scaling options 'Fit columns to' and 'Fit rows to' options in Page Setup.

       File names can be used in Hyperlinks and are sent to Excel.

       The Window title now shows the "Maintain" or "Print" as the first word, depending on how the Financial Report was opened from Ledger.

       Added 'Lock Toolbars' option to View | Customize | Toolbars. Prevents the toolbar from being moved or modified.

       When creating a financial statement it hides the "Departmental Comparative" option in the Layout dialog if you are not using departments.

       When formatting dates, you can suppress leading zeros in the day and month elements by choosing “Precision 0” in the Format Type dialog.

       Increased the period and year drop down to allow all periods and multiple years to be shown.

       Added sample financial statements for updating the budget amounts using GLUpdate formulas. The GL!BudgetUpdate.sam statement allows entering an annual budget and amounts will be divided equally across all 12 fiscal periods. The GL!BudgetUpdateMonths.sam statement allows entering monthly budgets into columns and amounts will be written to the respective fiscal periods.

       Added new the new ‘Values’ codes to the SuperSpec template and specification in the sample data. Updated the FunctionExamples and DateFunctionExamples.

       A new sample financial statement (GL!DtlListing2.sam) has been added that allows you to quickly generate the transaction details for a non-contiguous range of accounts into an Excel spreadsheet. Instructions for its use are in the statement.

    Problems Fixed

       The Clear Contents menu choice on the right-mouse menu on a cell now immediately clears the formula from the edit field on the toolbar.

       VSUM displays the calculation correctly formatted.

       Corrected the column number of Totals in drill down to Details view of posted transactions.

        When using the “.RangeDept” SmartSheet command, the financial reporter now correctly ignores inactive departments if 'Ignore inactive accounts' has been enabled for the sheet.

       Previously, you could not Copy cells when a SmartSheet was expanded. This has been fixed.

       Printing a Statement Group no longer adds the individual statements to the “Most recently opened” list.

       Enabled the arrow and Delete keys for non-generated cells in expanded smart sheets.

       Editing a generated cell from the edit bar behaves the same way as F2 when a sheet is expanded.

       GLFPS("OPEN") now correctly reports the beginning of the fiscal year.

    General Ledger

    New Features

       Favorites for a report are now available on the report dialog in a drop-down field. Private Favorites are yellow, Public Favorites are blue. Users with many favorites may find it easier to locate and print them from the report dialog. Users with only a few favorite reports that they print frequently may find it easier to print them from the Favorite Reports fly-out menu under the main Reports menu. The ability to print Favorites from the report dialog allows users to print the Posting Journal from a Favorite when posting batches with the 'Auto print posting journal after post' option enabled.

       Added ePrint embedded codes for Session Year Month (%SYM) and Actual Year Month (%DYM) for PDF folders and filenames (these codes expand to YYYYMM).

       Added ePrint embedded code Form Type (%FRM) for PDF folder names (expands to "Financial Statements" for Statement Groups and financial statements).

       The default Favorite name and default PDF filename for the Favorite, have been changed for certain reports so that at year end Favorites names to not need to be changed. The fiscal year (%FYR) is embedded in the PDF filename but not in the Favorite name. For example, the PDF filename for Posting Journals defaults to GL%FYRPostingJournal%PJN (would expand to "GL2011PostingJournal 100.pdf" for sequence 100). The Favorite name defaults to GLyyPostingJournal (where: yy is PY-Previous Year, CY-Current Year, or NY- Next Year). The reports affected are: Batch Listings, Posting Journals, Batch Status, Detail Listing and Trial Balance.

       Report Favorites now remember the printer selected if it is not the Default printer. If you print a Favorite and the stored printer for it doesn’t exist, you get an error message and the printer is reset to the appropriate Default printer (for single or multicurrency).

       Ledger 9.0D eliminated unnecessary (redundant) workstation installs for the AdagioPDF printer driver and vitalEsafe if these features had already been installed by the workstation install for another Adagio module. This is now also the case when installing Adagio for use with Remote Desktop Services (Terminal Services in Windows Server 2008 and previous versions).

    Problems Fixed

       The Folder paths in the company profile for the ePrint are no longer forced to uppercase.

       The default PDF report filenames for Posting Journals and Batch Listings now include the %PJN and %BAT replacement strings (respectively) when ePrint is installed so that the files are easier to identify and do not overwrite previous files.

       Several minor problems related to ePrint functionality in Ledger have been corrected in this release. If you are using ePrint you should have this Ledger Service Pack installed.

       When printing Posting Journals and the Batch Status Report to a file, if the destination path did not exist the report was not written to file and you were not prompted to clear the information. If this happens you are now shown the path and the folder is created on the fly.

       In Ledger 9.0D, the Trial Balance printed the Department Description instead of the word "Total" if the 'Page break on change of account' option was selected.

       The prior year opening balance on the Detail Listing was reported as “Opening balance” when the 'Include Prior Year Postings' option was checked and there were no current year postings. It should have reported the current year opening balance.

       If your fiscal year is not December 31, when you signed-into Ledger with a date that is not equal to the fiscal year identifier (for example, if your yearend is July 31, and you logged in with date between August 1 and December 31), the Current Period/Year used for reports did not pick the actual period, but instead used period 12 from the prior year.

       When a posting journal was auto-printed after post, you could not post another batch until you first opened and closed the Ledger database. Instead you received the error message "Unable to access selected function, currently being accessed by [nnn] in [G/L Posting]".

       After using the Import Transactions function you were not able to do a backup until you closed and reopened that database.

       Purging Batch Status report in Ledger 9.0D was slow in some cases across a network for larger databases. This was related to allowing the recovery of batches. The speed has been improved and a progress bar has been added.

       If you un-posted a batch in Next Year, the Current Year Unpost Journal was the journal auto-printed.

       In Ledger 9.0D the error count at the bottom of the batch listing was incorrect when the batch contained an error due to a missing account.

       When you attempted to add a Report Favorite for a report showing 'Home and Source' to a Report Set you got the error message "Favorite report <name of favorite> requires a multicurrency printer".

       If an auto-reversing batch generates an error batch because the next period is closed, the auto-reversing option is now on in the error batch.

       The Print/Delete Favorites menu choice was missing from the Reports menu after you deleted a Report Set.

       Ledger no longer displays a warning about closed periods when entering Archive batches as you are often preparing a batch for a period that has not yet been opened. Dates are checked when batch is posted after being copied or moved to a Current batch.

       The Export Reallocations function added in Ledger 9.0D did not work if you specified a range of a single Department.

       The Import Reallocations function added in Ledger 9.0D only imported a small number of records and there were errors for a larger file.

       Ledger 9.0D was updated from version 7 to version 8.5 of the Crystal Reports print engine. When installing Adagio for use with Remote Desktop Services (Terminal Services in Windows Server 2008 and previous versions) this necessitated manually copying the crystal folder from the main windows folder to the windows under each user. For example, on Server 2003 you had to copy the crystal folder from C:\windows\ to C:\Documents and Settings\username\windows. This is no longer required. The install and workstation installs will do the copy. The Ledger program will also do the copy if possible, which will avoid the need to do a workstation install in some cases.

       When installing Adagio to a computer or server where no Adagio modules had previously been installed, if you installed an Adagio module that does not use the Crystal print engine first (such as Lanpak or GridView), when you installed Ledger you received the error "Adagio has been established on destination folder: [x:\SOFTRAK]. Yet the install cannot detect the corresponding Reports Tables..." and were unable to proceed. If the first module installed uses the Crystal print engine there was no problem.

       When running any Adagio module that installs vitalEsafe (or WebSafe as it was previously known as) on a Windows 7 (or Vista) station, in some cases the auto-workstation install ran every time you started the application, even if you had done a workstation install. This happened if the user was not an Administrator on their own machine (the default for a new computer) but rather a Standard user, and User Account Control (UAC) was on, and you had not installed any module with a release date of October 2011 or later and done a workstation install for it on the station. This has been resolved. To resolve this problem for ALL other modules, install any module with a release date of October 2011 or later and do a workstation install for it on the station.

    Financial Reporter

    New Features

       Added .RangeAccount function, for which the SmartSheet will expand the specified account range once for each account in the range, without altering the department range specified. This is useful in cases where you wish to create a row for every account in a range, summarized to the department mask used.

       The Adagio Styles (File | Styles in Adagio modules) are available in the Financial Reporter (Format Cells, Based On tab). The Financial Reporter's own Styles, available in earlier versions, are included in the list.

    Problems Fixed

       A problem occurred in some cases where the QuerySheet function caused cells to display !Error and values returned were incorrect when Next Year was created before closing the Current Year.

       The Financial Reporter now detects corruption in the Account Data tree (file GLATREE) and recreates the file. In prior releases this type of corruption caused the error "Adagio Financial Reporter has stopped working".

       In Ledger 9.0D, the Financial Reporter was not correctly setting the Paper Size or Orientation of individual statements when printing Statement Groups to printer if the statements had different Paper Sizes and/or Orientations.

       Fixed a problem in printing statement groups where multiple copies of the same statement are produced when “All departments” is selected as an option.

Release Notes
Print This

    The changes and improvements to Adagio Ledger with this release are significant. To make it easier to review the various changes that have been made, we have grouped them by function in this release note. The Financial Reporter changes and improvements are listed separately from General Ledger.

    General Ledger

  • Styles and Account Filters are available to display accounts in different colors and Filter accounts that meet specific criteria. Use Colors to instantly identify miscoded accounts.

  • Grids, filters, and finders now show the lookup values instead of the raw data values for typed fields. For example Account Type shows as 'Balance', 'Income' or 'Retained' instead of B, I, or R.

  • Report Favorites allow saving Reports with specific options chosen. Click the Favorite button (a star icon) on any report dialog to create a Favorite. Added Favorite Reports and Print/Delete Favorites functions to the Reports menu. Multiple favorites can be defined for the same report. Favorites can be private to the Adagio user or public for use by all users.

  • Installs the AdagioPDF printer driver. All reports and printouts from Adagio can be printed to the AdagioPDF printer to create a PDF document in the data folder.

  • Adagio Ledger and Financial Reporter fully support the features in Adagio ePrint. When ePrint is installed you can print reports to PDF files in configurable folders determined by the Report Type (General, Transaction or Audit). Financial Statements and Statement Groups print to a separate, configurable folder. Fields can be embedded to establish the file and folder names (User, Session Date, System Date, Time, Batch Number, Posting Sequence). Click the ePrint button (red "EP" icon) on any report dialog to print the report to PDF. The Paperless Reports option forces all reports to be printed to PDF. Reports can be printed to PDF and attached to an email (MAPI) with a single button click.

  • Report Sets allow the grouping of Report Favorites and Statement Groups into a single print job that will run unattended. Report Sets may be printed to printer or PDF files. Report Sets may be launched from a command file or a scheduled Windows task by running Ledger.exe with the parameter /R followed by the Report Set (ex. /RMonthEnd). A progress dialog lists the reports in the Report Set, the printing status of each, the destination folder, filename and conflict strategy. A log is generated that records the printing status of each report in the set. Use Report Sets to automate the printing of all your month end reports.

  • The User Preferences function has been updated. The Appearance tab, 'Alphabetically sorted field list' option and 'Exclude Ranges' option have been added.

  • Added validation of account optional fields in the Edit Accounts function.

  • On the Open database dialog you can now use Alt-B to open the browse and Alt-F (for Favorites) to open the previously opened list. In previous versions you had to use the mouse to select the folder buttons.

  • Alt-X now selects the Excel Direct button on grids where it is available. In previous versions you had to use the mouse to select Excel Direct.

  • The vitalEsafe upload progress dialog has been improved and the progress bar now accurately shows the percentage. It is no longer necessary to install the vitalEsafe patch.

  • New functions added in 9.0D default to being disallowed in Security Groups when you upgrade from an earlier version, rather than allowed, as was previously the case in new versions.

    Reports

  • The Reports menu has been reorganized and a General Reports sub-menu added.

  • Added ExcelDirect Financial Statements to the Reports menu to send statement groups directly to Excel without having to launch the Financial Reporter.

  • You can now print a distribution summary by account on batch listings. Added the 'Print G/L summary' option to the Print Batches dialog.

  • Added the option 'Include closing amounts' to the Detail Listing. It allows you to reprint the Detail Listing at any time without showing the 'Closing Entries' section. It is visible only if you restrict the period range to the last period.

  • Added the 'Entries in error only?' option on the batch listing to select only batch entries for the report that have at least one error. This allows you to quickly isolate entries in error that must be corrected before posting, without having to print and review the entire (potentially very large) batch listing.

  • Added the 'Opening balances for period' option to the Trial Balance report dialog to allow you to print the opening balances for the selected period rather than the closing balances.

  • Added the option 'Exclude 0 balance accts' to the Trial Balance report dialog. Use this option to exclude accounts that might have had activity but ended up with a $0.00 balance, potentially reducing the amount of paper in a Trial Balance with a lot of clearing accounts. This new option is slightly different than the existing option 'Include accounts with no activity', which includes accounts that fall within the selected range and have had no transaction activity within the fiscal period for the report.

  • Added the 'Current year/period only' option on the Detail Listing and Trial Balance report dialogs. Select this option to default the fiscal year starting and ending period from the session date used to log into Ledger. The option can be particularly useful when printing the report as a favorite.

  • After printing the Batch Status report you can clear the information for the posted and deleted batches in the range printed. A warning has been added indicating that if you do clear this batch information you will not be able to un-post, reverse or recover these batches.

  • Reports use the newer Crystal Reports 8.5 print engine. This allows exporting reports to PDF format from the report preview window and is another way (separate from AdagioPDF) to print reports to PDF.

    Import / Exports

  • Added Import/Export Departments, Import/Export Source Codes, Import/Export Account Notes and Import/Export Reallocations functions. The Import/Export Reallocations functions allow you to readily change reallocation percentages without having to manually edit Reallocations.

  • The Import Budgets and Import Forecasts functions include the Account Description 1 and 2 fields. This allows you to use import to change the description for a new year without having to manually edit accounts afterwards or make the change by running the import accounts function as well.

  • The Import Budgets and Import Forecasts functions now support importing a single annual budget figure and automatically allocating the amount over 12 or 13 periods.

    Edits

  • Added the option 'Spread over first 12 periods' in the Edit Budgets and Edit Forecasts functions to allow you to spread the annual budget total out over the first 12 of 13 fiscal periods. The annual total is determined for just the first 12 periods, and the amount for period 13 is set to 0.00.

    Inquiries

  • Added the option 'Display period n only?' to the View Account Transactions function (where n is the period selected at the top of the screen).

  • Added an Excel Direct button to View Account Budget History grid.

    Batch Entry

  • New options have been added on the copy batch dialog. The 'Revise date fields' option now allows you to set a date rather than using the login date. Added Revise Reference, Revise Description 1 and Revise Description 2 fields, allowing you to set new constant text for these fields during the copy.

    Miscellaneous new features

  • The Retrieve Subledger Batches function uses the full product name rather than a 2 character code in the resulting batch description when retrieving batches from third-party applications.

  • Added the option ''Open all periods?' to the Create Next Year and Create Next Year Budgets functions. Turn this option off to have all periods default to closed. In previous versions the periods all defaulted to open for the next year.

  • The Data Integrity Check now detects and rebuilds orphan header and/or detail records in batches.

    Problems fixed

  • Export / Import functions have been updated for field lengths that should have defaulted to 40 characters instead of 30.

  • The Export Transactions function did not find any records to export if the starting Account/Department did not exist.

  • The Import Accounts function now prevents you from changing the Account Type.

  • Import templates could not be processed on start-up using the 'Auto import on start-up' option if the import file was a .xlxs file, even though the template was set up with the correct filename and could be imported manually.

  • The Export Transactions function incorrectly displayed the error "Estimated record count n exceeds capacity of your Excel version (65534 rows). Export aborted." when you exported to older versions of Excel and had 65535 or more records in your GL Posted transactions file.

  • In the Export Account Net Changes function, the Opening Balance and Current Balance fields exported were from the current year regardless of the fiscal year selected.

  • Several other fixes have been made to the import and export functions.

  • You could not create a reallocation batch for a fiscal period in next year if the period was closed in the current year. Ledger was checking the period in the wrong year and you incorrectly received a warning saying the period was closed.

  • When the batch listing dialog is opened from the batch list, the focus is now on the Print button rather than the Batch Number field, allowing Alt-P to be used immediately to print that batch. This allows Alt-L and then Alt-P to be used to quickly print a batch you just edited and is now consistent with other Adagio modules.

  • When a batch is deleted the Last Edited Date, Time, and User fields are updated.

  • If you posted from the Retrieve Subledger Batches function all open batches in current were posted, not just the batch or batches you retrieved, if you were in Next Year and there were no next year batches.

  • When a batch containing entries with Statistic Units was copied with 'Reverse Entries' selected the sign on the units was not reversed. The sign of the units was also not reversed when Auto Reverse batches were created.

  • If you printed the Detail Listing for a Retained Earnings account for a range of periods that did not include period 1, the report total was incorrect and could not be reconciled to the Trial Balance.

  • When the Detail Listing was printed with the 'Batch/entry nos.' option the Batch Entry No. field was partially cut off.

  • The Source Net Changes fields were off by one period and the Home Net Changes were off by 2 periods in custom reports created in Crystal Reports for Adagio.

  • The Edit Budgets and Edit Forecasts functions refresh the Ending dates column for the year selected. In previous versions the Budget, Forecast and Net Changes columns were updated but not the Ending column.

  • For MultiCurrency databases, if an Account Source Currency existed for an account in Next Year, a false error message was being displayed when the Account Source Currency was added to the account in the Current Year.

  • When using the next/previous keys in the View Accounts function, the reallocation grid was not refreshed correctly in some cases and displayed information from the previous account you just viewed.

  • The Data Integrity Check now detects out-of-sequence errors in the Posting Journal file.

  • After printing source journals the backup function could not backup the GL Account Master files (GLMAST*).

  • Financial Reporter

  • You can now force a statement to “Fit to page” either by column or row. File | Page Setup allows you to fit the statement columns or rows to a specific number of pages. The printout will be scaled to fit the space available.

  • Editing a SmartSheet is now disabled if the sheet is expanded to prevent you making changes that will be discarded when the statement is refreshed. This disabling includes moving columns.

  • You can now hide inactive departments in the Department View. The Right-mouse menu on the Department title includes Hide Inactive / Show Inactive options. Selecting the Ignore Inactive button on a financial statement now also ignores inactive departments (as well as inactive accounts). Inactive departments are suppressed in the department drop-down, and will not be shown in the list of available departments when defining a Statement Group. File | Departmental Print will also ignore inactive departments.

  • A new function =ISEXPANDED() (returns TRUE() if the Smartsheet is expanded, otherwise returns FALSE()) has been added so that a formula can test the state of the financial statement.

  • 'Include Y/E Adj' and 'Ignore inactive accts' options have been added in statement groups. This information will be printed if “Statement Group” is selected in File | Send to sheet.

  • The current row and column is now easier to determine with the column and row number highlighted.

  • You can now protect the Excel worksheet that is created when you ExcelDirect a financial statement. This option is enabled in View | Customize | Settings.

  • Remove Row and Remove Column on the Edit menu have been renamed Delete Row, Delete Column for consistency.

  • Speed keys have been added to most Menu choices.

  • The Verify SmartSheet command now ignores inactive accounts.

  • You can now enter hyperlinks such as web addresses into cells in a financial statement and these hyperlinks will be preserved when a statement is sent to Excel.

    General Ledger

  • If Next Year has been created, a retained earnings account can no longer be changed from single to multi-currency and the retained earnings account can no longer be changed in departments or in the company profile, as doing so resulted in incorrect balances after posting or unposting. These changes are allowed again once the current year has been closed.

  • When you copied an account to a new account with a lower account number (higher in the grid) than the account being copied, the account you were copying from was opened for edit instead of the new account.

  • When editing budgets using '% increase' for the Update Method, or using Moving Values by '% increase', the resulting figures were 100% larger than they should have been.

  • A warning message was added in Ledger 9.0C batch entry if the date of a transaction is outside the date range of the fiscal period it is assigned to. This warning now only displays once per entry rather than for each detail.

  • If 'Edit retrieved entries' was set to 'No editing permitted' in the Company Profile and you attempted to edit a retrieved batch, if after getting the warning saying modification is not allowed you tried to view a detail anyway, an error message was displayed.

  • If you had Next Year open and had posted transactions to an account, then changed that account from single to multi-currency, further postings to the account caused an integrity error that could not be rebuilt by the Data Integrity Check.

  • An error occurred if you provisionally posted more than 20 batches at one time.

  • An access violation error message was displayed by the Batch Unpost function if you closed the function without unposting or if the 'Auto print posting journal after post' option was on and you unposted (note: the batch was correctly unposted in these cases).

  • The Unpost Batch function now handles the case where it previously gave an error if an unposting journal file existed for next year but next year was not open. This likely occurred due to an improper restore procedure (all GL data files were not deleted before restoring).

  • Some accounts did not show an opening balance on the Detail Listing when printed in Source and Home format.

  • The Report Balance total field at the bottom of the Detail Listing report was incorrect in some cases when it was printed for multiple departments and it included accounts for which the only transactions were from prior years.

  • If you posted to the YE Adjustment Period for the prior year, an error batch was created if the period specified in the batch was for a closed period in the prior year. This no longer occurs.

  • The new import/export engine used to interface with Excel in Ledger 9.0C gave an error during import if the number of columns in the import file and the template did not match. The error is no longer given if the number of columns in the import file is greater than the number in the template, as users may create a spreadsheet with more columns initially and then delete the values in the columns rather than deleting the actual columns.

  • In version 9.0C, if you defined the Amount field incorrectly as string instead of number in a batch import template using the ASCII Fixed Length format, all credits were imported as debits.

  • Importing the 'Multicurrency' flag set to true to change existing accounts to multi-currency caused a database integrity error when posting to these accounts.

  • When you exported accounts containing an "E" in the Account number to an Excel file (e.g. "21E082"), they were interpreted as an exponential number in Excel (e.g. 2.1E+83). Accounts are now formatted as strings rather than numbers when exported to Excel.

  • If an Adagio User belonging to a Security Group that does not permit them to log in attempts to log in, messages are no longer displayed related to retrieving batches on start up.

  • An entry as been added to the end of the Data Integrity Check (DIC) log when a rebuild has been done. It now says "After doing a Rebuild you must run the Data Integrity Check again to ensure all errors have been rebuilt". In particular if a rebuild is done and the log contains the entry "Posting file merge completed", you need to run the DIC one more time to complete the rebuild. In general, it is good practice to run another DIC after a rebuild. In cases where the DIC cannot rebuild the database, the entry " Data may require repair. Call your dealer or Softrak Systems for Data Repair Service." is added to the end of the log. Although the data may still be useable, you may want to restore from backup or have the data repaired, as errors in the database may cause problems at a future date.

  • The workstation install (WKSETUP.EXE) and the auto-workstation install for Ledger 9.0C (2010.05.11) incorrectly set the path to the Ledger.EXE file in both the Windows start menu and desktop icon to the local C drive instead of to the network drive in some cases.

  • The workstation install did not add entries for the Ledger program in the Windows start menu if you installed 9.0 and Ledger 8.1A or older was also installed.

    Financial Reporter

  • You can now display the Chart of accounts summarized by any text field, as well as in account number order. By populating an option field with an alternative account number, you can choose to display your chart in another sequence. This may be useful in creating statements according to a different coding structure.

  • Users with Print Only access can now reset their toolbars and access the options on the View | Customize menu. The fiscal period and year will always be displayed on the Toolbar.

  • GLUPDATE did not work for the last column in the statement (usually period 12 or 13).

    General Ledger

  • After converting to 9.0C, there was a data integrity error whenever you posted to an account that had not been posted to yet in
    9.0C. There was no data loss and the Data Integrity Check rebuilt the error. The Data Integrity Check now also detects and
    rebuilds the problem caused by the conversion, preventing any further problems in posting.

  • The data dictionaries required by 9.0C were not installed in some cases on some machines due to an unknown lock on these files
    by the OS. The install now detects this problem if it occurs and displays a warning. In addition, the program now detects when the
    data dictionaries are not correct and displays the error "Incorrect data dictionary for this version of Ledger. Please re-install
    Ledger." when started.

  • You can now optionally turn off creating a Table in Excel 2007 when using Excel Direct from grids and finders. If you don't have
    one already, create an ssi2xl.ini file in your x:SoftrakSystem folder (where 'x' is the mapped drive Adagio is installed to) and enter
    the following setting, where <windows user name> (without the angle brackets) is your Windows login name (not your Adagio user
    initials):
    [DisableTableCreate]
    <windows user name>=1

  • If the Security Group restricted access to Edit Accounts but Edit Accounts was selected for On Startup, Edit Accounts opened
    when it should not have.

  • The Import Transactions function required that the import file contain the 'Transaction No.' field and it could not be set as a field
    default. It is still a required field but it can be (and must be) set as a default so it will be auto-generated if it is not included in the
    import file.

  • The Export Source Currencies function only exported the current year even when a different year was selected.

  • If posting failed in Ledger 9.0C, you got the error "Incomplete posting. Only Data Integrity Check will be available." when you
    attempted to open the database. However, the Data Integrity Check displayed an error and could not be run.

  • In rare cases a user opening the Ledger database while another user was posting could get a false error message indicating there
    was an incomplete posting.

    Financial Reporter

  • 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 pale
    yellow background. This default may be changed under View | Properties. The chosen color shows up when viewing the spec but
    does not appear on Print Preview or when printing to paper.
    Adagio Ledger 9.0C 2 of 4
    AL20100511 11-May-2010

  • In some circumstances in 9.0C, a financial statement would fail to generate a row for the ending account in a range, when a
    statement was expanded for a single department.

  • GLUPDATE() failed to report some errors on evaluation and incorrectly handled a leading minus sign. This has been fixed.

Release Notes

    The changes and improvements to Adagio Ledger with this release are significant. To make it easier to review the various changes that have been made, we have grouped them by function in this release note. The Financial Reporter changes and improvements are listed separately from General Ledger.

    General Ledger

    • Fully compatible with Windows 7.

    • Added new function User Preferences under the File menu. It allows you to set certain options by user that were previously global, including options previously found under File | Options, Reports | Report Options and from the Company Profile (company background color and On Start-up functions). The preferences can optionally be set for all users and preferences can be printed. If no individual user preferences have been set up for a user, all preferences originally set for the Adagio System Administrator, user SYS, will be used.

    • The option 'Auto-advance smart finder' has been added (in the User Preferences function). It controls whether the focus is on the previously found grid or on the search criteria field when the smart finder is opened. Select the option if you want focus to be on the next row in the grid, allowing you to press F6, Enter and march through the found list. Turn it off if you usually want to search by a new criteria each time the smart finder is invoked. In either case the position is advanced in the grid each time the finder is opened.

    • The option 'Implied decimal' has been added (in the User Preferences function). Turn the option on if you want a decimal automatically entered before the last two digits. For example, typing 400 in an amount field and tabbing to the next field will result in the number being changed to 4.00; typing 400.00 and tabbing to the next field will leave the number as 400.00. With the option off, typing in 400 will result in the number being changed to 400.00 (the behavior in previous versions). Percent fields and exchange rate fields are not affected by this setting. The setting is by Adagio user, for all companies, and when set in any Adagio module, it is set for all Adagio module versions that support it.

    • Added an Excel Direct button to more grids, including Edit Accounts, Edit Account History, Edit Budgets, Edit Forecasts and View Accounts. Use the 'Enable SF Export' option in Edit User to enable or disable the Excel Direct button.

    • Excel Direct now has a progress bar and cancel for use on grids with a very large number of rows.

    • Excel Direct (from finders, smart finders and from grids in some modules) 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 OpenOffice.org. Note that unlike Excel Direct there is no formatting with CSV. To enable this functionality, entries must be made manually in the file \softrak\system\ssi2xl.ini. Refer to the Readme help for details.

    • The Help | About dialog now has a 'System Info' tab showing the version and path to various DLLs used by the program.

    • The Source Code GL-JE is automatically created when a new databases is created. Adagio Ledger 9.0C 2 of 8 AL20100405 08-Apr-2010

    • The warning message displayed when opening a database with a date outside the Fiscal Year now indicates the current Fiscal Year.

      Edit Accounts

    • The Edit and View Account screen is now sizeable, allowing for more lines to be shown on notes, reallocations and currencies grids.

    • Alt Keys have been added for tabs on the Edit and View Account screens.

      Edits

    • Options have been added to the Company Profile, Options tab, to allow you to lock budgets and/or forecasts in the current and/or next year to prevent them from being edited. Depending on what is locked you may not see the Clear or Copy button on the Edit budgets/forecasts grid. If you are editing then years which are locked cannot be selected in the edit budgets target fiscal year screen. Import will display an error if you attempt to import budget or forecast figures when they are locked.

    • Update budget by Annual Total or Constant Amount changes the amount to zero when the when next account is accessed.

      Inquiries

    • The View Transaction/Budget inquiry grid can now be set to show active accounts only.

    • In the View GL Entry in the View Transactions function. In the View Transactions function, the performance to view the first GL entry in the session has been significantly improved and may be 10 times or more faster across a network on a large database.

      Batch Entry

    • A Recover Batch function has been added to the Maintenance menu. This function can be used to recover a batch in the current year that was accidentally deleted or one that was previously posted.

    • Added the option 'Recalculate period based on date' to the copy batch and copy batch entry functions. This is useful at year end when you may have transactions where the dates are correct but the fiscal period has been set to 99 or 12 because the Next Year has not been created yet.

    • Added the option 'Warn if entry days away' to the Company Profile, Batch Options tab. Batch entry warns you if a transaction date varies more than this number days from the date used when starting Adagio Ledger.

    • The background color of the Edit Batches screens can be set for the Current and Next Year to help differentiate them and prevent accidentally entering (and posting) in the wrong year. The background color of the Edit Archive Batches screen can also be set. The colors are set in the Company Profile on the Batch Options tab. In addition, if the Next Year is open, the Fiscal Year is displayed in the window title of the Current and Next Year edit batches screens.

    • In the Batch Unpost function, if you are not deleting the transactions originally posted with the batch (i.e. the 'Delete entries from posted?' option is off), the UnPost button changes to Restore, to indicate you are restoring (i.e. making a copy of) the original batch.

    • The Description 2 field from the first detail is now available in the Column Editor for the Edit Batch Entries grid.

    • A warning is now displayed in batch entry if the date of a transaction is outside the date range of the fiscal period it’s assigned to.

    • A message can now be displayed in batch entry if the transaction date is in a closed period. The option 'Validate closed periods' in the Company Profile, on the Batch Options tab, can be set to 'Warn only', 'Disallow', or left blank. 'Warn only' will display a warning when the transaction is saved and allow you accept or change the date. 'Disallow' will display an error and you will not be able to save the transaction. If the option is left blank no warnings or errors will be displayed. Note: Posting always respects fiscal period that have been closed.

    • A batch can be set to 'Auto Reverse'. Auto Reverse batches automatically post a reversing entry into the next period. They are useful for payroll and other accruals. The date is set to first day of the next period. The option can be set when you create a new batch or on the Rename Batch dialog. Note: You may not create an Auto Reverse batch for the last period in the fiscal year.

    • Added the option 'Skip 2nd entry description' in the Company Profile, Batch Options tab, to help speed up batch entry by not visiting the second description field (added in Ledger 9.0A) while tabbing through fields on the batch detail entry screen. The field can still be visited by clicking on it.

    • When you click OK on entry that is out of balance, the warning displayed now allows you to say OK accept it or Edit to allow you to change it, rather than just closing the entry after the warning.

    • Added new option 'Auto Advance' on the batch entry screen to help speed up entry by auto editing the next existing detail if you say OK to the current one (if say Cancel it stays on the same entry). This new option does the same thing that turning on 'Auto add batch entry details' in File | Options did in previous versions, plus it auto advances to the next detail when an entry is being Adagio Ledger 9.0C 3 of 8 AL20100405 08-Apr-2010 edited. Therefore the original option has been removed and is not included in the new User Preferences function that includes the options previously found in File | Options.

    • Added new option 'Visit amounts first?' on the batch entry screen to help speed up entry when editing existing details and you are just changing the amounts in an archive or restored archive batch.

    • The 'Visit all fields?' and 'Auto-balance entry' settings in batch entry, as well as the new 'Auto Advance' 'Visit amounts first' options, are now remembered (by Adagio user).

      Posting

    • Users can now post batches while other users are entering batches or printing reports (only while a report is printing or being previewed, but not while the work file is being created).

    • Batches can now be provisionally posted without having to be set 'Ready to Post'. Forcing a batch to be set 'Ready to Post' in order to post it provisionally allowed a batch that you probably didn't want to post for real to be exposed to exactly that possibility.

    • Running Debit and Credit totals of all entries in the batch are now shown on the batch entry screen.

      Reports

    • Added 'Report Preview Options' in the File | Options function to allow you to set the default zoom factor and preview window state (full screen or partial screen) for previewing reports to screen. These settings are saved by workstation. Note: this applies to previewing reports only (but not previewing financial statements).

    • Report printing performance has been improved when data is on a network drive.

    • The 'Ready to Post' status now appears on the Batch Listing report. The status of the new 'Auto Reverse' setting is also shown.

    • The focus is now on the Starting field on the Detail Listing and other report dialog screens, rather than the Print button.

    • The Active status field has been added to the Departments report.

      Maintenance

    • Added 'Close/Open Period' function in the Maintenance menu. Based on the login date, the function will close the period you are in and open the next period, even if it is period 1 of the next year. Works for both 12 and 13 period companies.

    • The 'Close Income/Expense Acct' function now displays a warning if you attempt to run the function and you haven't yet run the 'Create Next Fiscal Year' function?

    • The Close Current Fiscal Year function now offers to backup data before proceeding.

    • Added the option 'Auto open next period days in advance' to the Company Profile, Options tab. If you regularly close periods in the Fiscal Calendar that you don't want to be posted to, set this option to the number of days before you want the next period to be opened for posting.

    • Added option 'Allow G/L Consolidation' to the Company Profile, Options tab. If turned on (the default), the Consolidate Posted Transactions menu option is visible on the Maintenance menu; otherwise, it is not visible even to those users granted access within Security Groups. This prevents users from accidentally running this function.

      Data Integrity Check

    • The speed of the Application Integrity Check (phase 2) of the Integrity Check is significantly faster.

      Import / Export

    • The Clone Company function now allows you to change the fiscal calendar of the new database to different new year end and number of fiscal periods.

    • The Export Budgets and Export Forecasts functions now include the Description field.

    • Import/Export supports Excel® 2007 format (.xlsx) allowing for greater than 65,535 rows in import and export files. Spreadsheets no longer need to be saved in Excel 97-2003 format (.xls) before they can be imported.

      Fixes in Ledger 9.0C

    • The 'Last access' date was not updated if the program was started from the Adagio menu of another application or from an icon with parameters that bypassed the login screen. Therefore the field was not up to date on the login screen the next time you started the program.

    • If there are errors during any import function, the error message dialog displaying the error (e.g. "Errors have been written to the log file C:softrakdataxxIMPERR.ddd.") now allows you to view or print the log file.

    • Reports could not be printed to certain printers at some sites but this was very rare. One in particular was the HP2015. Financial reports were not a problem.

    • Reports could not be printed to file with the AdobePDF printer driver after installing an Adobe® Reader® update released in January 2010.

    • When the Detail Listing report was printed for an account that does not have any posted transactions for the prior year but does have net changes in the Account History it just showed an opening and closing balance but not the net change in each period.

    • Old formats such as Lotus, Dbase and Clipper that are almost never used any more were removed from import / export templates in Ledger 9.0B (2009.07.13). The old formats may now be manually turned back on for sites that need them.

    • When a new database was created with Ledger 9.0B (2009.04.30) or (2009.07.13), the Detail Listing report and the View Transactions drilldown function did not show the first half of the very first posted transaction, resulting in an out of balance condition. The database was correct and subsequent transactions were okay. Previously created databases did not have problem.

    • You could not copy an account where the original and new account were both in the same Account Group range with 'Enforce Account Groups Range' enabled. Furthermore, you could copy an account and use a new account code that was not in any of the Account Group ranges without getting an error.

    • For companies with a non-calendar year end using 9.0B, when you imported budgets to the Current year the prior year was updated instead. The display showed the current year but the previous year was actually updated unless you reselected the current year. Importing to the Next Year did not have a problem. Note: In Ledger 90A, you could import to any year and it didn’t default to the current year.

    • Corrects problems exporting from grids in the View Transaction/Budget function and from drill-down details in the Financial Reporter, to Excel 2007, after installing Receivables 9.0A (2009.09.28), Time&Billing 8.1B (2009.09.27) or Purchase Orders for Adagio 8.1A (2009.29). There was no problem with Excel 2003.

    • When Units where shown on the Detail Listing report the Balance for the final Account/Department before the Account Net Change subtotal line did not print.

    • The Detail Listing report did not print report totals if 'Page break on change of account' was selected.

      RESOLVED

    • In Ledger 9.0B you are prevented from editing budget and forecast figures in historical years. You can only edit these figures for the Current Year or the Next Year (if created). This ensures you are editing the budgets and forecasts you expected to be editing, as previously it was very easy to be editing the wrong year. You were also prevented from importing budgets and forecasts to historical years. This restriction in the import function has been removed.

    • The Edit Account History function incorrectly changed the opening and closing balances for a retained earnings account if you clicked OK, even without changing any amounts.

    • In multi-currency databases, if the 'Auto-balance entry' option was on you could not tab into the Credits field in batch entry.

    • Typing the Adagio user password on the Open dialog displayed the characters very slowly when on a network in rare cases.

    • The Spread for a detail changed to zero when you edited an existing detail in a multi-currency batch.

    • In Ledger 9.0B you could not create a Department with a blank Department Code as field verification is always on starting with that version. However, some sites needed a blank Department to allow them to report on just it in the Financial Reporter.

    • In Ledger 9.0B, the Batch Description was truncated to 30 characters instead of 40 if you renamed it.

    • Editing a reallocation for an inactive account now displays a warning that the account is inactive.

    • Pressing the Delete or Insert keys when on the Edit Account Budget Data grid screen displayed an access violation error.

      Financial Reporter

    • You can now use the Financial Reporter to enter or edit budget and/or forecast figures and write them back to Ledger. This is faster, easier and more convenient than using export and import. Write back uses =GLUPDATE(spec code, account, amount) formulas, where: - the spec code can only be a specific budget or forecast period (i.e. B[x]M or F[x]M), - the account can only be a specific account-department pair (or account if departments are not used), a #Range# cell error occurs if multiple account-departments are used, - the amount is the new budget or forecast amount you want to write to the data. Notes: Only the latest fiscal year can be updated; Next Year if it exists, otherwise Current Year. You cannot update the figures if the budgets and/or forecasts for either the current and/or the next fiscal year locked in the Company Profile, Options tab. The Adagio Ledger 9.0C 5 of 8 AL20100405 08-Apr-2010 toolbar needs to be reset to show the 'Update Budget/Forecast' button.

    • Added function to 'Print Financial Statements' to the Reports menu in Ledger to allow you to print financial statement groups without opening Financial Reporter. If 'Specify Fiscal Period' is set on the statement group you will be prompted to select the fiscal period and fiscal year. Note: You must open the Financial Reporter once using the Maintain Financial Reports function in the Maintenance menu and then reopen Ledger before the Print Financial Statements function is shown on the Reports menu.

      Fixes in the 9.0C Financial Reporter

    • Duplicate Row now correctly increments cell references.

    • Expand recalculates values based on the department selected in the drop down menu.

    • =VSUM() has been improved to display only the sum of cells on the sheet that are visible (where the row has not been hidden). This allows the use of =VSUM(cellrange) to include rows which may be expanded by a SmartSheet.

    • Duplicate Row now inherits all the formatting from the duplicated row. Expanding a row with the attribute “Hide when printed” causes all the generated rows to have that attribute set as well.

    • A recalc is now forced whenever the fiscal period or zero suppress settings are changed, or when a user with departmental restrictions opens a new sheet.

    • Copying an entire sheet to a new worksheet now copies the formatting as well as the contents of the sheet.

    • Expanding a .Range or .RangeDept that is "Hide when printed" now copies that attribute to the expanded rows.

    • Zero Suppress did not work in some cases when a cell displayed as zero but actually contained a very small value.

    • The Excel Direct export from the drill-down to transactions did not correctly format certain fields in the resulting Excel worksheet.

    • Dates displayed when using GLFPS() and GLFPE() are now correct in all cases.

    • Statement Group issues with Excel Direct and adding a new group have been corrected. All users may now create statement groups, not just the SYS user.

  • An option to open the Account Transactions inquiry on startup has been added to the company profile.

  • Closing the year in Ledger 9.0A did not update the budget total in the account master resulting in an incorrect amount in the account
    grid (only the grid was affected). The Data Integrity Check now detects and corrects the budget total.

  • The smart finder on the Department in the Edit Department function gave a field number out of range error in Ledger 9.0B.

  • When you deleted a transaction from a batch the cursor was repositioned to the bottom of the batch and the grid lost focus. It now
    positions correctly on the transaction following the deleted one.

  • The option to print landscape oriented multi-currency reports on scaled printers was not working reliably and has been replaced with
    an option to ‘Fit to paper size’ (your printer / driver must support ‘Fit to paper size’). Under File | Options, the ‘Multi-currency Report
    Printer / Orientation Landscape’ option ‘Letter on dedicated scaled printer’ (and in some modules, ‘A3’ and ‘A4’) has been replaced
    with ‘Legal fit to other’ option. Use this option to print landscape oriented reports such as the Detail Listing report in ‘Source and
    home’ on letter instead of legal size paper. International companies can use this option to print on A4 or A3 paper. A Tech Tip is
    available from Softrak describing how to fit legal size reports on letter.

  • The Trial Balance in Ledger 9.0A/B (for any period except period 12) was incorrect when there had been year end adjustments
    (whether or not ‘Include YE adjustments’ was selected).

  • Added the ‘Show Description’ option to the Trial Balance report, allowing selection of Primary, Secondary or Both.

  • The Account Balance total on the Detail Listing in Ledger 9.0B was double when printed with ‘Include prior year postings’ selected.

  • Ledger 9.0B could not retrieve a multi-currency sub-ledger batch into a single currency GL and displayed the message 'Home and
    source amount differ on a home currency entry. This batch cannot be retrieved'. This has been fixed.

  • ExcelDirect from the View Accounts function now creates a table in Excel® version 2007 or higher rather than simply populating
    cells.

  • The F5 and F6 keys were not launching the Find in the View Accounts function.

  • The Data Integrity Check now detects and removes corrupt budget records that have a blank fiscal year.

    Sign-on

  • The Adagio Open Data Dialog has been significantly improved. The Previously Opened database list is now saved by Adagio User rather than for all users. The first time an existing user or a new user logs into Adagio Ledger 9.0B they will be asked “Would you like your historical company access list set up?” Answer yes to have all entries from the Previously Opened list from your prior use of Ledger copied for your use. The Open Data screen and Previously Opened database list now show the date the database was last opened by the user. You may also elect to have Adagio save your Adagio User Id and Password and default them when logging into Adagio. The saved information is based on your Windows authenticated user name. This option may be turned off by editing \softrak\system\ADS.INI and adding the lines:
    [Options]
    RememberUser=0
    RememberPassword=0


  • Options have been added to open several different functions when the program starts up, including Account Edit, Account Inquiry, Current Year Batch Edit, Archive Batch Edit. External batch management is improved with options to “Auto Retrieve Batches” and “Warn Retrieve Batches”. “Auto Retrieve” launches the external batch retrieve dialog from which the user may cancel if desired. Turning the retrieve options off allows you to prevent certain users from being able to retrieve sub-ledger batches.

    Accounts / Departments

  • When creating a new department you can create accounts for the department by multi-selecting either the entire chart of accounts or selected accounts. This is particularly useful when creating your first department since you cannot copy an existing department and the accounts belonging to it.

  • Copy Account allows control of ‘Additional files to copy’, including Notes, Budgets, Forecasts, Reallocations and Currency buckets, and places you directly in account edit for the newly created account.

  • You can now make a department "inactive". When a department is made “inactive” you can optionally makes all accounts in the department inactive as well.

  • You can now copy budgets to forecasts and vice versa. If you are editing budgets, then the copy function will move the figures to the forecasts. By sorting the Edit dialog into department-account sequence and multi-selecting all the accounts in a range, you can easily copy all the figures for a single department.

  • Copying Source Codes and Source Journals automatically places you in edit for the newly created item.

    Inquiries

  • The View GL Entry screen is now sizable.

  • An Excel button has been added to the View Account Transactions function, allowing you to send accounts, transactions or entries to Excel with one mouse click.

    Batch Entry

  • Default batch description text can be automatically created with user initials (%usr), date (%dat) and time (%tim) created in a user specified format. Multiple date and time formats are supported. These options are set on the Options tab in the Company Profile. The batch description can still be edited as required when the batch is created.

  • Added ‘Auto-balance entry’ option to batch entry. This option automatically fills either the debit or credit side of the transaction with the amount necessary to balance the entry. The cursor is automatically placed in the debit or credit. The auto-balance option is best used when journal entries have pairs of details, with one debit and one credit of equal amount. The setting you choose is remembered for the next entry.

  • The copy batch function now updates the last date and user information if any of the revise options (date, period, reverse debit/credit, etc) are selected. It does this when copying or moving batches or entries, and when copying to the same batch, a new batch or a specific other batch. If none of the revise options are selected, then information for the copied entries remains the same as the original entries. Note that the batch control also independently stores created by user/date and last edited by user/date, and this information is always updated to the new user/date as appropriate when creating a new batch or adding to an existing batch.

  • Added the Account Description to the list of fields available in the Column Editor for the details grid in batch entry. The ‘Unit Amount’ field is now available in the Column Editor to allow you to show statistical units in the details grid in batch entry.

    Posting

  • You can now un-post batches from the Next Year.

    Reports

  • Added ‘Allow Post Journal Purge’ option to Company Profile. If this option is off you cannot clear the regular posting journals after printing them. This prevents accidental purging of posting journals. If this option is off the posting journals will be purged as part of Year End. The Unposting Journal can still be purged after printing.

  • The Chart of Accounts report now has an option to exclude Inactive accounts from the report.

  • Added total debits and total credits fields for all Inactive accounts not included on the Trial Balance report to prevent confusion when inactive accounts have a balance on file.

  • Accounts with activity are not printed on Trial Balance if the activity nets to 0 in each period. This will help reduce the number of clearing accounts that are listed on the report.

  • Added option ‘Close report dialog after print’ on the Print/Post tab in the Company Profile. Set this option off if you often print reports multiple times with different settings or ranges.

  • The list of printers available from Windows is now refreshed immediately before printing reports and receipts. When a user with a shared local printer logs in under Terminal Services the list of printers available to Windows changes because one more printers has in effect been added. If other users were in Adagio applications this resulted in the selected printer being changed in Adagio in some cases. If the user did not notice this and reselect the correct printer before printing then their report randomly and unexpectedly printed on a different printer.

  • The right-hand edge of some reports was cut off on A4 paper. In version 9.0A the program no longer forces the form size (i.e. override the setting in customized reports). This allows users to use the ModRP feature to change the standard reports to make them narrower.

  • Report printing performance has been improved on some reports.

  • The Active field is now shown on the Chart of Accounts report.

    Edits

  • Edit Budgets and Edit Forecasts have been significantly improved to speed the entry of budget figures. Speed keys have been made available on several frequently accessed fields, and the tab order has been modified to more accurately conform to the expected field entry. When “stepping through” a range of accounts or departments, Adagio Ledger remember the previously used method for allocating the budget and automatically changes the method. If you “step into” an account with non-zero entries and there is no previously used budgeting method on file for the account, you will be placed into “manual entry” mode to prevent inadvertently changing the previously set budget figures. If the method results in updated budget or forecast figures, these amounts will be displayed in red to highlight the change. For accounts where the budget / forecast has never been edited the function defaults the entry method to the last you used for the company. If the program will be saving changed figures, the “Ok” button text will be changed to say “Apply”.

  • When editing the fiscal calendar, the starting date of next period is automatically set on exit of the previous period’s ending date.

  • You can now change the Type in an Account in some cases. In cases where it is not allowed it is now prevented. Refer to the help for specific details.

    Retrieve Sub-ledger Batches

  • Retrieve sub-ledger batches now supports the Accounting Date field introduced in Receivables 9.0A. This field is used to force individual transactions into a period other than the period of the transaction date. You can now retrieve a batch to a specific period in the Next Fiscal Year. If Next Year is created, then a Fiscal Year is editable when the Specific Period option is selected. If Next Year is not active, then the fiscal year is visible but not editable.

    Import / Export

  • Imports may be selected to process automatically when Adagio Ledger is started. An import template must be marked for automatic processing, and the corresponding start-up option selected in the Company Profile.

  • A new function, ‘Clone Company’, has been added to the Export Menu. Clone Company allows you to quickly create a new company, choosing the parts of the existing database that will be useful (such as departments, budgets, financial reports, and source journals). If accounts are moved to the new database, their transactions will be deleted and the account balance set to zero. The home currency code can be changed for the target company.

  • Export batch function added (Detail-only format). This allows remote sites to export a batch and send the file to a head office to be imported. The ability to do this was lost in Ledger 9.0A because archive batches are in one file rather than individual files. Export batch also adds the ability to update archive batches by exporting, making changes and importing. The copy batch function allows you to revise the period and date but you may also want to update other fields such as the amount, description or reference.

  • A log of records skipped and the reason is stored in the import log file GLIMPERR.dat.

  • Export/import with a path greater than 65 characters resulted in an Access Violation error. You now get a message explaining the problem.

    Data Integrity Check

  • The Data Integrity Checker (DIC) can rebuild from an incomplete posting in many cases. NOTE that the incomplete posting flag is not reset until you do another DIC after the rebuild and it is clean (i.e. you have to rebuild twice). You cannot get to other functions until the DIC is clean. You must also check that your account balances are correct. Although the integrity check has rebuilt all the errors and accounts are in balance it is possible the amounts are not correct or that there are missing transactions. These will have to be entered and posted in another batch.

  • Adagio Ledger will optionally create a backup of related data whenever a Data Integrity Check completes without errors. Adagio Ledger will always create a backup of a database prior to applying any “fix” as a result of the “Rebuild” option being selected to repair damaged data. Backup details are written to the log file.

    Maintenance


  • You can now run the Revalue Accounts function for the Next Year.

    Generic

  • Date entry has been improved by recognizing a single number as a day and defaulting the month and year of the entry. Four digit numbers default the year. Entering “12” into the date control with the sign-on date being Feb 26, 2009 will result in February 12, 2009 being returned to the application.

  • The options ‘Enable SF Export’ and ‘Enable SF Printing’ have been added to the Edit User screen to allow you to disable Excel Direct in Smart Finders to help safeguard your sales data, customer list and other information in your database.

  • The performance of the SmartFinder over a network has been improved significantly. The SmartFinder on Accounts is 2-4 times faster.

  • When Adagio GridView 9.0A or higher is opened from the Adagio menu, Adagio Ledger 9.0B will be displayed as the first line on the Select Module screen so you do not need to scroll down to find it.

  • The Help Menu has been modified to allow the user to launch the Adagio System Status utility (chksys.exe) and print the Adagio Lanpak registration form.

  • WebSafe changed to vitalEsafe™ in Backup function to reflect the 3rd party name change.

  • The multi-currency files for single currency databases are now backed up when you backup a ‘Complete Dataset’.

  • Updated the help, including adding a Year End Processing Checklist.

  • Automatically copies help files (*.chm) to the local drive so that Service Packs do not require a workstation install just to update the readme help file.

  • Install, workstation install and Service Pack install now support installing to a LINUX server without a special command line parameter.

  • Several minor changes have been made when creating a new database.

  • When installing the GL 9.0A (2008.03.07) Service Pack (but not a full product or upgrade) and you are running anti-virus software, if you elected to install the sample data the install performance became extremely slow in some environments.

  • Scrolling in the grid of Accounts in the View Transaction/Budgets function was slow on large databases on a network drive in Ledger 9.0A (2008.01.22) and 9.0A (2008.03.07).

  • Scrolling in the grid of transactions in the View Transaction/Budgets function did not work correctly if there were a large number of transactions for the account and depending on where you were positioned in the grid.

  • The Source Journals could not be printed in Ledger 9.0A (2008.03.07).

  • Additional fields from the transaction are now included on the transaction dialog in the View Transaction/Budgets function.

  • When editing several existing entries in a batch (not entering new entries) an Access Violation occurred in some cases.

  • The look of disabled buttons on the toolbar has been improved.

  • In View Accounts you can now sort the View into Department/Account sequence. Use the right-mouse button to select the sort.

  • The Posting Complete message screen appeared under the Merging Transactions screen in some cases when posting a very large batch with data on a network drive and you topped another window during posting. This made it appear that the posting was hung, although simply topping the Adagio Ledger and pressing ENTER would clear the problem.

  • If you tried to post an entry to an account that does not exist, the Posting Errors report showed 'Error in Entry x in batch y. Placed in batch z. Net Change record missing.' The error is now correctly shown as 'Error in Entry x in batch y. Placed in batch z. Invalid Account.'

  • Detail Listing can now be printed in a 'Condensed' format. This format allows for more transactions per page. The condensed format more closely resembles the Detail Listing in previous versions. Use the 'Units' or 'Batch/entry nos.' formats to show the additional information available in Ledger 9.0A. To reduce the number of pages even further, select Report Options under the Reports menu and turn off the option 'Show parameters on all pages' (there are more options in Ledger 9.0A than in previous versions, making the header section larger).

  • The pennies were cut off of the right most column of the Detail Listing fro some printers in some cases.

  • Some corrections have been made to the Detail Listing when sorted by Department / Account.

  • The 'Import Source Currencies' function reported errors when you tried to save a new template in some cases. These errors should only have been displayed when the import was actually run. This prevented you from saving the new template.

  • The import function now remains open after completing an import. This is convenient if you have several imports to perform.

  • When you ran "Close Current Fiscal Year', a list of 'Procedures to complete before running Change Fiscal Year' appears. This has been changed to 'Procedures to complete before running Close Current Fiscal Year'. In addition, the item 'Close year - must perform function first' has been changed to 'Close Income/Expense Acct - must perform function first'. These changes should help clarify the steps required before closing the year.

  • The error 'Floating point division by zero' occurred when retrieving prior year data in a multi-currency database if a multi-currency transaction had a source amount but the home amount was zero.

  • Help and Financial Report Help have been updated.

  • Printer Setup button added to the print preview window. Allows you to select a different printer after previewing a report.

  • Copy batch from Next Year now defaults the period based on the date rather than always setting it to period 12.

  • The Edit Batches grid has some improvements and corrections to the copy and move functions when in use by multiple users.

  • The final balance was not printing for the last Department on the Detail Listing.

  • Pressing the Listing button displayed the message "Incomplete posting. Only Integrity Check and backup will be available" if at batch was posted by another user when you had the batch list open.

  • The subtotal amount on the Batch Listing was cut off when the amount was in the billions.

  • On the Trial Balance screen, if the Report style was set to 'Worksheet', the screen was screen was not displayed correctly.

  • The Detail Listing did not show the closing entry correctly after posting to a Prior Year income statement account.

  • In Edit Accounts, equity accounts that are Balance Sheet accounts rather than Retained Earnings accounts (such as paid in capital) could not have their Account Group set to C10 'Equity - Share Capital'.

  • If you added a prior year in the Edit Fiscal Calendar function and then edited account history for that year it caused an integrity problem in some cases.

  • The period description was coming from the current year instead of the selected year in the View Transactions function.

  • You could not import Accounts, Budgets, Forecasts, Statistics or Transactions in Adagio Ledger 9.0A (2007.12.19) and received an error saying you were blocked by another user (yourself).

  • If the 'Report missing departments as errors' was enabled in the Company Profile, then importing accounts for which the department code did exist resulted (correctly) in an error. However, this was also preventing import of accounts that don't have a department at all.

  • The Export Transactions function incorrectly gave the error message 'starting period is greater than last period' when the range did not start at period 1.

  • Importing new accounts when Next Year was active cause integrity errors in some cases.

  • Importing transactions for accounts in a prior year caused integrity errors in some cases.

  • Swapping back and forth between import account templates without first closing the import function caused the fields to get mixed up in the template.

  • The Import Account Net Changes function reported errors when you tried to save a new template in some cases. These errors should only have been displayed when the import was actually run. This prevented you from saving the new template.

  • If both fields Fiscal Date and Fiscal Period are imported in a batch, the Fiscal Period now takes precedence unless it is zero, in which case the Fiscal Date is used to determine the period. This is the way it worked in earlier versions of Ledger. In GL9 however, the Fiscal Date was always used and the Fiscal Period in the import file was ignored.

  • The Create Next Year function allowed you to cancel. If you canceled it caused integrity errors in some cases. Cancel is no longer permitted.

  • You were permitted to close year to an account that was not a Retainage account. This caused errors when a new year was created. This is no longer permitted in the Close Income/Expense Account and Create Next Fiscal Year functions.

  • The DataCare check of Ledger multi-currency data incorrectly reported the error: 'Retained Earnings account does not accept currency'. The Data Integrity Check in Ledger itself did not report this error.

  • When multiple instances of Adagio Ledger were run on the same machine, the window title did not show the instance number (for example: Adagio Ledger (2) - Adagio Corporation).

  • The cursor remained displayed as an hourglass in some cases after the program displayed a message indicating the Financial Reporter was locked by another user or instance.

  • You could not paste serial numbers and install codes into the install screen using the right mouse menu, although Ctrl-V worked fine.

  • The currency files were deleted in some cases if you elected to uninstall your old version of Ledger when installing the Ledger 9.0A upgrade to a network drive. This could happen on single currency databases and it prevented you from opening Adagio databases until the files were restored. In addition, the SSINST32.DLL file was uninstalled in some cases if you installed your Adagio 8.0 or earlier products from a different workstation than one used to uninstall your old version of Ledger. This prevented you from running Adagio 8.0 and earlier modules.

  • The sub-ledger batch could not be retrieved from some third-party products in some cases if it included comment lines. The products affected included Purchase Orders for Adagio and 21st Century Payroll.

  • The sub-ledger batch could not be retrieved from Adagio JobCost 8.1A if transactions had been posted in JobCost prior to and after upgrading to Ledger 9.0A before retrieving.

  • When the Next year is activated, the retrieve function displayed a screen with Yes/No choices to post sub-ledger batches for the Next year, when retrieved batches do not default as Ready to Post, thus posting should not yet be available. The Yes/No choices have been replaced by an OK button.

  • If you had the View Transactions/Budgets screen open when you posted a batch, the posting did not complete in the 2007.11.02 release. In the 2007.12.17 Hot Fix you received the message: 'Unable to merge posted transactions, file currently in use by another process.'

  • The export Account Budgets function did not insert the appropriate value for the account or department in the range fields in some cases, causing the error message 'No records to export in that range.' to be displayed.

  • You could not import a batch in the 'Detail-only' format that had only 1 entry when running the 9.0A (2007.11.30) Hot Fix.

  • A failed import created an empty batch in some cases.

  • The values for the Account Sign showed 'Debits' as blank in GridView when the 'Translate coded fields' option was enabled. Grids within Adagio Ledger displayed 'D' correctly.

  • The Active/Inactive ('A'/'I') values showed as reversed in GridView. Grids within Adagio Ledger displayed correctly.

  • The Description field showed as blanks on the batch entry details grid when added to the grid with the column editor.

  • The Comments field showed as blanks on the batch entry grid when added to the grid with the column editor.

  • Using the finder in the Edit Account Forecast Data function caused an access violation error.

  • The Smart Finder was not working on Account / Department fields in Adagio 8.1A sub-ledger programs after installing Ledger 9.0A.

  • The 'Description 2' field is now available in the column editor on the batch entry details grid.

  • Added the composite table 'GL Net w/Budgets & Master (Read Only)' to make it easier for GridView users to get Account Master, Balances and Budgets on a single view.

  • The Reference, Date, Account and Department fields from the first detail line of the entry can now be shown in the batch entry grid.

  • When editing Archive or Next Year batches, the window title of all screens now includes 'Archive' or 'Next Year' to differentiate them from current batch screens.

  • Editing a provisionally posted batch did not reset the status to Open.

  • The error message displayed if the Retained Earnings account was invalid showed the wrong department.

  • Some field labels and button names were incorrect in the Backup Options, Security Group Setup and Security Group Listing functions.

  • If you have the Company Profile option 'Report missing department errors' selected, this will now prevent creating a new account-department pair for which the department code does not exist. Previously this was only reported as a warning in the Integrity Check. This affects creating, copying or importing new accounts.

  • Options for A3 and A4 paper added for the Multi-currency Report Printer in File | Options. Available only on multi-currency databases. The report formats remain unchanged. Users with Crystal Reports for Adagio can modify canned reports for A3 and A4 paper and place in \Softrak\Ledger\ModRP.

  • The Detail Listing report prints now prints subtotals for the account net change and the account balance in the footer section for each account. The report footer section contains the Report net change and the Report balance. Labels have been included to identify the amounts. Previously the Total account balance was not printing on the report.

  • When printing the Detail Listing report for departmentalized accounts and the last department had no transactions, the account totals section was incorrectly suppressed.

  • The Account Description was not fully displayed on the Detail Listing report for long descriptions.

  • The GL Listing and Trial Balance reports now have 2 options to control selection of accounts: 'Include accounts with no activity' and 'Include inactive accounts'. The former refers to accounts with no postings and the later refers to the 'Account active?' setting in the account. Note that when 'Include inactive accounts' is off, accounts with a balance can be excluded and therefore the report may not be in balance.

  • Printing Next Year batches did not set the status to Printed.

  • The Batch Listings for Next Year incorrectly reported errors that the period was closed if instead the same period in the current year was closed.

  • The Posting Journal report did not print if it contained consolidated entries and you selected to sort by Account.

  • When the Posting Journal was sorted by Account the prior year report did not print "Prior Year", and the current year report did print "Prior Year".

  • Smooth Year End. Close Year is now Close Income / Expense Accts. Change Fiscal Year is now Close Current Fiscal Year. Create Next Fiscal Year function added. Transactions can be posted in either the current and last fiscal year, or current and next fiscal year (when the next year has been opened).

  • Multiple Years of History including transactions are now supported. Closing a year does not clear the transactions for the year being closed. Detail transactions are available for drill down in the financial reporter, and G/L detail listings can be printed for prior years.

  • Prior years can be retrieved from backups of Adagio Ledger databases from previous years (the data to be retrieved MUST NOT be converted to 9.0A prior to retrieval) or ACCPAC® PlusT G/L (except version 7.0A) including net changes (balances) and transactions. Use the 'Retrieve prior year data' function in File | Import. Your prior year data must be a snapshot of a point immediately after completing year end, and if prior year postings were made in the current year they should also have been made in the backup database. The database to retrieve should not have any integrity errors. The retrieve has a mandatory check integrity button to check posted and net change balances in the database before retrieving. If these conditions are not met, the prior year figures may not be correct and data integrity errors may be reported. Once prior year data is retrieved, it is not included in further integrity checks done in Adagio Ledger V9.0A.

  • Account Groups can be defined as non-contiguous ranges, and these ranges can be enforced when new accounts are added to the chart of accounts.

  • Archive batches can be entered just like current batches. Batches are archived and restored by copying between current and archive. Old style archive batches from previous versions are retrieved into the new archive batch system when data is converted to 9.0A, if they reside within the same folder as the data being converted.

  • The Account Description field has been increased from 30 to 40 characters. Accounts also have a second description field. You can print the primary, secondary or both descriptions on the Chart of Accounts report.

  • The Transaction Description has been increased from 30 to 40 characters. Transactions also have a second description field. The second description can be entered in batch details and will be retrieved from 8.1A or 9.0A subledgers. You can print the primary, secondary or both descriptions on the Batch Listing, Posting Journal, and Detail Listing.

  • A Find has been added on View Transaction/Budgets.

  • View GL Entry displays all transactions that made up an entry (unless consolidated).

  • View Account Transactions has Debit and Credit columns instead of one column with positive and negative amounts. An Amount field is also available in Column Editor and GridView if you do not want to separate debit and credits.

  • Edit Fiscal Calendar is a separate function instead of part of the Company Profile.

  • Fiscal Calendar screen has been improved. The pop-up calendar is now available in the period start and end date fields. The date in the period description field can be formatted automatically using the period start or period end date.

  • The Fiscal Calendar can be printed.

  • Post to Prior Year can have transactions written to a separate 'YE Adjustments' period so that they are kept separate from actual postings from the year. Reports and Financial Statements have options to exclude these posting to the YE Adjustment period.

  • Statistics fields in Account/Department can be used to track units such as hours, gallons, pieces, etc. Enter the Type of Units when the account is created or edited. Quantity of units is entered in batches for those accounts that have an associated unit. Adagio subsidiary ledgers up to and including V8.1 do not send statistical information to any accounts. Statistics units and quantities can be shown on financial statements and optionally printed on the G/L Detail Listing.

  • 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.

  • Improvements to Budget entry and display. The column editor can be used to choose display fields for source and target accounts. The source can be any fiscal year. You can edit budgets for any fiscal year and use net changes, budgets or forecasts for the source. Auto advance by account has been added. You can also auto-advance by department. Next / Previous buttons added to speed moving to new account to edit. Column totals have been added to the Display Account budget amount fields.

  • Drill-down to subledger ready. Retrieve is ready for subledgers to send fields required to allow drill-down. Future releases of Adagio sub-ledgers may support drill-down from Ledger. Adagio 8.1A subledgers are already sending the information necessary for drill-down to Ledger 9.0A when it is installed.

  • Retrieve ready to support Fiscal Periods specified in the subledger transactions. Future releases of Adagio sub-ledgers will allow the fiscal period to be specified in batch entries.

  • Retrieve ready to support statistical, such as hours, gallons, pieces, etc. units entered in subledgers. Future releases of Adagio subledgers post units to the G/L transaction batch.

  • Open database not only warns if there are subledger batches to retrieve, it now also offers to retrieve them at that time. If the 'Require print before posting' is off, the retrieve will also offer to post the batches. The posting journal will be printed after posting batches during the retrieve if the 'Auto print posting journals after print' option is on.

  • When installing an upgrade there is a warning that a database conversion will be required. The conversion suggests you do a backup first and offers to do it there and then. Once a database has been converted, it cannot be accessed by earlier versions of Adagio Ledger or ACCPAC Plus General Ledger.

  • Added View Accounts in Inquiries menu (i.e. Edit without ability to save). Security Groups can be used to allow users to view but not edit accounts.

  • Optional fields have been added on Accounts (3 strings, 2 dates, 2 dollar and 2 unit amounts). Field titles are set in the company profile.

  • User and date stamp fields have been added on batch entries. Use the Column Editor to select the 'Date Edited' and 'User Edited' fields.

  • Grids and finders support the 'Account active?' flag in Accounts. Inactive accounts can optionally be hidden on grids and finders. To hide inactive accounts, set the 'Active records only' option in the Column Editor for the grid or finder. This option also prevents you from editing inactive accounts or entering them in a batch.

  • Ready to Post indicator on batches. Selecting a range of batches to Post will skip those with this indicator set "off". Company profile options control the default setting for this flag when batches are created. You cannot post an out of balance batch regardless of the setting of this flag.

  • Unposting batches now respects the open/close flag of the fiscal calendar when you delete the transactions from the file. You cannot delete transactions using Unpost batch from closed periods.

  • Earlier versions of Ledger have the ability to remember fields during batch entry but only until you close the batch. Ledger now has the ability to remember fields from an existing entry without having to first add a new entry. To do this, open an existing entry and tab through the fields in a detail. You might use this if you were in the middle of a big batch, closed GL and returned to complete it later. This saves you from rekeying the reference and a possibly lengthy description fields.

  • The Data Integrity Checker now has warnings as well as errors. Note that Adagio DataCare counts warnings as errors and warnings will cause a fail status on a DataCare job. You can set the 'Application errors to ignore' equal to the number of warnings to cause a pass in the job. Account balances with the wrong normal sign (set when the account is created) generate warning messages.

  • You can now adjust the home currency amount for a source currency balance without touching the source currency amount for cases when the subledger source amounts agree with the Ledger but the home amount does not.

  • Added Import/Export Transactions functions. Import functions for Net Changes, Budgets, Forecasts, and Statistics/Net Changes have been added. They are separate from Import Accounts function.

  • Added 'Account normal sign' field in accounts to indicate the type of balance the account should normally have. It can be set to Credit, Debit or Both. The Data Integrity Checker will give a warning if an account balance is not 'normal'.

  • Security Group Setup has a listing report to print allowed/disabled menu choices.

  • Inquires menu added. View Batch Status function added to the new menu. The Display Accounts function has been moved to the new menu and now displays only the account information. View Transactions/Budgets is a separate function in the menu. Custom GridView views appear in this menu now, rather than the reports menu.

  • The Posting functions have been consolidated into a single function, so you can select to post to current year, post to prior year or post provisionally, without having to close and re-open a different function.

  • The Print Posting Journal functions have been consolidated into a single function, so you can select regular, provisional or unpost journal, from the current or prior year, without having to close and re-open a different function.

  • The Close Current Fiscal Year menu choice is hidden until it is valid to use.

  • Fields are always verified during entry. The Field Verification option previously found under File | Options has been removed.

  • Improved the program icon and toolbar buttons for a cleaner look and better scaling on Vista.

  • If menus have been disabled because of an integrity error so that only the Data Integrity Check menu choice is available the Backup menu is now also available.

  • Compatible with Windows® VistaT.

  • Compatible with Adagio Lankpaks 8.1A. Lanpaks must be 8.1A for all Adagio 8.1A modules.

  • Smart Finder can now search on multiple criteria.

  • Contents of disabled fields are shown in blue rather than dimmed gray. This may be easier to read on some monitors at higher resolutions.

  • Adagio download files, installs, workstation installs, all workstation install (\softrak\allwkst\allwkst.exe), and the Adagio Check System utility (chksys.exe) are now signed with a digital certificate using VeriSign to allow you to verify the Publisher is Softrak Systems Inc.

  • Vista does not support the old style Windows Help (.HLP files). All .HLP files were converted to compiled HTML help (.CHM files), which are supported by Vista.

  • For security reasons Windows does not permit .CHM help files to be run from a network drive. This is true in XP as well as Vista. The .CHM files must be run from a local drive. Adagio 8.1A installs all .CHM help files to your local hard drive and loads them from there. The workstation install also copies .CHM files to the local drive.

  • When switching window/task in Vista with Alt-Tab or the new Flip 3D (Windows-Tab) an image of the current Adagio screen is shown rather than just the icon of the Adagio program.

  • You can now backup Adagio data in zip form to WebSafe, a web-based storage facility. WebSafe is a service which allows you to store your important information in a secure location that you can access from anywhere in the world. See www.websafe.com for details.

  • Currency symbols other than $ are now supported in reports.

  • The formatting of dates and text containing numbers sent to Excel from Smart Finder results has been improved.

  • Financial Statement Designer:

  • Two new functions =GLFPSD() and =GLFPED() are available that return the fiscal period starting period and fiscal period ending period (respectively) as a date type. The new functions expect a .ColSpec line to determine the specification code. You may apply any of the standard date formatting rules to the cell, or pass the function to =DATESTRING() to specifically format a date (although changes to =GLFPS() and =GLFPE() should minimize the need for this - see below).

  • =GLFPS() and =GLFPE() now take an optional second string parameter to override the default fiscal period date format set in View | Customize. The values in the string are the same as those used in the =DATESTRING() function to format dates according to your requirements. Specification codes exist to display just the year, month or day portion of the date in all formats. Examples of 2nd parameter:

    "MMM" Jan
    "YYYY-MM-DD" 2007-01-01
    "YYYY-MMM-DD" 2007-Jan-01
    "YYYY-MMMMM-DD" 2007-January-01
    "MMMMM DD, YYYY" January 01, 2007

  • Added Column Page Break to the Financial Reporter for better control of pagination when printing statements.

  • An option was added under View|Customize|Settings to force Excel Direct to send values rather than formulas.

  • In version 8.0D (2006.10.20) a new feature allows you to send sends formulas to Excel, not just values. Fixed problems with Excel Direct when using $D, <<, >> and ==.

  • Users with a Departmental Restriction can no longer View or Print Statement Groups, for those groups that reference a department to which they do not have rights.

  • When creating a new financial statement using drag and drop, Use Colspec format is now the default choice.

  • Drill down to Tx Details is now available when using the ColSpec format.

  • Drag and Drop using the ColSpec format "freezes" to top rows of the statement. Printing will include these rows on each page.

  • In some cases, Row Formatting and Zero Suppress when used together did not apply the proper formatting. This has been fixed.

  • Covered cells prevented selecting columns for copy and format. You can now select the column though the cells in the top rows are under a 'Cover'.

  • File\Import Spec was creating a filename with the prefix AF! instead of GL!.

  • You can now duplicate columns from the right-click pop-up menu when a single row is selected.

  • Corrected problem in Excel Direct decimal precision in 8.0D (2006.10.13)
