New Features - Build 26
 1. New interactive QuickBooks link using the new QuickBooks XML API is now available! This new link has many improvements over the old import/export iif type QuickBooks link. It is faster and easier to use. No more exporting files, then switching to QuickBooks to import the files. No more trying to figure out why a file would not import. QuoteWerks now creates the estimates, and invoices directly in QuickBooks, and automatically assigns the invoices the next available invoice number. No more guessing on names of accounts, any time you are asked to make a selection, the link will offer you choices. You can now perform exports of batches of quotes/orders/invoices all at once, so with a simple click multiple invoices can be exported all at the same time! The new link works with the USA versions of QuickBooks Pro/Premier/Enterprise 2002 and 2003.

 2. Support for GoldMine 6.0

 3. Added support for CRM/Service software KnowTia. See www.knowtia.com for details.

 4. Updated version of QuoteWerks API now supports events that can be called in external applications like add-ons to notify the application of important events in QuoteWerks such as when a quote is saved, opened, created, converted, etc. The following events have been added: BeforeSaveDocument, AfterSaveDocument, BeforePrintDocument, AfterOpenDocument, BeforeConvertDocument, AfterConvertDocument, AfterNewDocument, BeforeRenameDocument, AfterRenameDocument, BeforeDeleteDocument, AfterDeleteDocument, AfterAppExit, BeforeContactSelection, AfterContactSelection.

 5. QuoteWerks can now automatically start/run addon applications that use the QuoteWerks API when QuoteWerks is started. In the site.ini file, there is support for a new section called [Addons], and the key Autorun1={AddonAppName.exe} will run that application. AutoRun1 through AutoRun10 are supported.

 6. Added Misc Access right CannotViewOthersDocuments. When this is set, a salesrep can only view his/her own documents from the File|Open menu no matter which search option is selected. Along the same lines when viewing the customer and/or product price history, only the documents owned by the sales rep will be included in the results.

 7. For GoldMine users, when creating a forecasted sale, the list of opportunities to associate the forecasted sale with will now include also any opportunities that the customer is linked to as an influencer.

 8. The File|Export to DTF file wizard has a new option "Export documents modified since last export" option. This takes away the guess work of remembering what date and time you last did an export when exporting quotes to send back to the main office, or out to remotes.

 9. For GoldMine SQL users with large databases, the performance of creating linked document records has been dramatically improved. Performance is also improved for GoldMine Dbase users. The performance of related activities such as converting a quote to an order or invoice, and renaming a document is also improved since these activities often involve manipulation of the linked document records.

 10. For GoldMine SQL users with large databases, the performance of scheduling Callbacks has been dramatically improved. Performance is also improved for GoldMine Dbase users. The performance of related activities such as converting a quote to an order or invoice, and renaming a document is also improved since these activities often involve manipulation of the callback records.

 11. For GoldMine SQL users with large databases, the performance of writing forecasted sales/opportunities has been dramatically improved. Performance is also improved for GoldMine Dbase users. The performance of related activities such as converting a quote to an order or invoice, and renaming a document is also improved since these activities often involve manipulation of the forecasted sale records.

 12. For GoldMine SQL users with large databases, the performance of writing profile/detail records has been dramatically improved. Performance is also improved for GoldMine Dbase users. The performance of related activities such as converting a quote to an order or invoice, and renaming a document is also improved since these activities often involve manipulation of the profile/detail records.

 13. The grid columns in the configurator when resized, now retain those resized settings.

 14. On the File Open window, the DocStatus text box is now a drop-down list box that automatically populates with different values based on which DocType is selected.

 15. On the File Open window, there is now a [Reset] button used to clear previous search values that you just entered.

 16. On the Product Lookup window, there is now a [Reset] button used to clear previous search values that you just entered. The previous way to clear these values was to press the esc key. Pressing the esc key now closes the window.

 17. Added spell check, cut, copy, and paste icons to the Send Email window.

 18. Added new Tools|Spelling menu with a shortcut key of F7. QuoteWerks 3.0 has always had spell checking features activated by pressing F7, but now there is a menu for it too.

 19. Added FaxExt field for a fax extension field for the QuoteWerks contact database. Also added an AccountNumber field to be used to store an account number assigned to this customer in the QuoteWerks contact database.

 20. QuoteWerks contact database fields can now be used with the DataLink feature to control what field in the quote the AccountNumber field in the QuoteWerks contact record is copied into. The Notes field can also be coped into a field in the quote.

 21. The print layouts now support multiple detail sections that print based on a filter criteria that you specify, so based on information in the line item, the line can print in completely different formats.

 22. Added new command line option to open a quote using its document number (/o:AAAQ1001)

 23. Added new DocumentItems macro logical fields DocumentItems->&LineAttributeExclude, DocumentItems->&LineAttributeHidePrice, DocumentItems->&LineAttributeDontPrint, DocumentItems->&LineAttributeGroupMember, DocumentItems->&LineAttributeOption, DocumentItems->&LineAttributeAltIsOverided, and DocumentItems->&LineAttributePrintPicture. These fields can be used now to determine when printing if a line item has these individual attributes. Now that this can be determined, you can create formula fields that print or do not print information based on the attributes.

 24. When selecting the Insert|Data Field menu in the layout designer, the default table would always be DocumentHeaders. Now, it defaults to the table that you last selected a field from.

 25. The login window now always stays on top of all other windows so that it never gets "lost" behind other windows.

 26. When creating a new GoldMine opportunity using QuoteWerks, you can now specify the starting date of the opportunity instead of it defaulting to the close by date.

 27. Added new cover page macros &DI_&Line1ManufacturerPartNo, &DI_&Line1VendorPartNo, and &DI_&Line1Description. These can be used to display the respective information on a cover page or literature document for the first line item in the quote.

 28. Added new print layout DocumentItems macro fields DocumentItems->&Line1ManufacturerPartNo, DocumentItems->&Line1VendorPartNo, and DocumentItems->&Line1Description. These can be used to display the respective information in any position in the print layout such as a footer section for the first line item in the quote.

 29. The medic utility can now repair and compact the security.mdb database that previously could not be repaired and compacted by the user because it is a password protected database.

 30. When importing multiple xml files from the File|Import menu, instead of being prompted with a message box saying import complete for each file imported, you will now see only one window displaying the status of each file imported.

 31. The advice window used in many areas of QuoteWerks that says "On the next window, select.." before allowing you to select an item now has a "Don't display this window again" option.

 32. When searching for a GoldMine contact from within QuoteWerks, if you choose to display secondary contacts, your selection will be remembered for your next search.

 33. Pressing the escape key while on any window with a close or cancel button will now close the window.

Misc Features - Build 26

 2. When selecting a folder to look in for importing xml files, the list of files for that folder did not display xml files.

 3. Removed "compact database after importing" option from Contact Import Wizard. This operation can be performed in the Medic Utility.

 4. When a print layout file is in use/locked by a server for more than a reasonable amount of time, a runtime error 70 permission denied error would happen when selecting the File|Print menu. Now, that error is trapped for.

 5. When refreshing the price of a line item in the quote, and the vendor selected for the item is Tech Data or Ingram Micro, and you are linking to the external Tech Data or Ingram Micro product database, and the price modifier for the item is empty, the UnitPrice will no longer be set to 0.00. This would happen because there is no UnitPrice field in the Tech Data and Ingram Micro databases.

 6. When in demo mode, the welcome screen had hyperlinks to the website that would somtimes launch unexpectedly.

 7. When bundle or configuration items are added to the document, the DocumentItem tabs receives focus.

Fixes - Build 26
