Views In Bartender 2016 R1 Follow

Good Afternoon All,

 

I originally used Bartender 10.1 SR4 to create labels ( which was connected to an Oracle Database). This accessed a couple of views which I then used in conjunction with query prompts and Data Entry for the users to specify which barcodes and how many to print.

 

Recently I have made the change to Bartender 2016 R1 and it seems some things have changed?

 

1. I cannot see any views? The only way I can access views is by explicitly writing the SQL statement which is of the form SELECT * FROM VIEW.

2. If I create a link via this method I can create labels however I cannot seem to create any useful Query Prompts or Filters?

 

Is this functionality not present anymore for views or has it been moved elsewhere?

 

Thanks,

Chee

Get in touch with technical support: http://www.seagullscientific.com/support/technical-support/

 

They will be able to help you, and if this is a bug, they'll be able to make sure it's reported and fixed in R2 that we'll be releasing in the not too distant future.  If this is a bug then chances are we've already fixed it for R2, but please report just in case.

Thanks Ian, I'm already in contact with my reseller for BarTender and I believe they are in contact with your people.

 

I was just hoping to see if anybody else has come across this issue.

 

Thanks again,

Hi,

 

did you (or anyone else) get any new information on this subject? I'm also highly missing the button to activate listing of available views in the Wizard!

 

Thanks @ all for any suggestions!

Is there any evidence that this problem will be fixed in the coming release? Any release notes regarding this? Thanks Tim

A significant number of issues will be addressed in R3, along with updated translations, and a few new features making for a worthwhile update in any case.  I'm sure there will be some release notes to read to go along with the new software.  I don't know if this particular problem is covered, but you'll discover that yourself soon enough.

I'm afraid I will discover this soon enough. It just would be great to know, since this in particiular stops our migration from version 9 to 2016...

Hi,

 

Do we know if R3 fixed these issues ?

 

After thoroughly reading the release notes, it doesn't look like it did.

 

Thanks,

I do not know myself personally.  R3 does fix a great many issues so chances of a fix being there is pretty good.  Feel free to email technical support if you wish to know before installing.  I would recommend the update whatever the case.
