Additional Info

Additional information regarding change

43

Changes made to Tadds at level 10315 eliminated Tadds' use of functions in the msvbvm60.dll module but the Tadds setup files still included the dll as part of the installation process.  This change merely eliminates the inclusion of the dll in the setup process.  It does not remove the dll from the user's system.  No problems have been reported concerning the shipping of the dll, but this change is being made to avoid possible future erratic system behavior if a non-Tadds program is installed in the future which requires the use of a more-current version of the dll.

44

The Team Schedule reports are not (currently) presented in any particular order.  While this is only a minor annoyance when looking a them on the screen or in hardcopy format, having them out of order in the generated webpages makes it hard to locate the particular one you are interested in.  This change causes them to be presented in alphabetical team-name order, thus eliminating the above problems.

45

Generate an index page which contains named links to the individual Team Schedule web pages which are generated by Tadds.  This would improve the usability of the generated web pages.  (Tadds Support Team comment:  While looking at this suggestion, it was determined that there is no simple way to generate such an index page from inside the actual Tadds Team Schedule Report code.  However, it was a simple matter to create a small (maybe 75-100 lines of code) Visual Basic routine which creates index pages by scanning the report's generated web pages.   This was the approach taken, and as a result it allows for the addition of a "continuation link" on those reports which are multi-page.  Note that this "indexing" and "continuation" of a multipage report requires that a couple of special flags be added to the related report definitions.  Reports without these flags can still be used to generate web pages, but no index pages will be generated.  These special flags are described in the online help text under Web Pages, generating, and most of the more common reports have been updated with the flags.)
