DataEase 8.2 - QBM and DQL Preview - QBM Layout ordering changed. DQL full free (Ver.


This is the latest compilation of 8.2 Beta. It is still not finished, but the DQL and QBM is getting closer to a working product.

Please download this version and try to make DQL/QBM reports from scratch. It will install parallel to your existing DE8 so you will be able to work uninterrupted in the release version and the Beta at the same time.

The purpose of this update is to make QBM/DQL reporting more intuitive and productive. The main "change" is that DataEase will now not override manual changes in your layout. 

We have removed automated changes to your layout after initial "auto layout" so you will now do all changes directly in the Layout rather than via the QBM dialogue. What you will still do in the QBM layout (Report) is sorting and filtering in DQL this will be done via List records and WITH as traditional.

List records in DQL is linked to the columns shown in the drop down in the layout to make it correspond better. DON't use SUM etc in list record, simply create SUM/COUNT and other statistical variables directly in Layout. 

It might be a little confusing at the beginning, but the test so far show that creating advanced and simple reports in DE 8.2 is much faster and more consistent than in previous version, mainly because you don't have to do the same things over and over again because DataEase interfere with your layout.

Please report back any problems/finding/suggestions on further improvement as response to this article.
