Calibration Control Current Version

Update Report and Label Templates

The overall database structure was changed significantly in Version 9 and later. All reports and label templates now use new field names and table names. Please note: if you updated from Version 9.0 or higher, you can skip this step. You can easily update all your default report and label templates with just the click of a button. Go to the Utilities tab and click Refresh Templates. All of your reports and labels will be moved to the Backup folder and replaced with the most up to date default templates.

All of your custom reports/labels will need to be MANUALLY updated. Update your custom reports by opening them in the Report Designer, comparing your custom report's data fields to the updated default report's and match your report's field names to the updated field names. In addition, the Script section of each report will need to be updated to use updated table names. Simply copy the entire Script text and replace the script text in your old report. If you simply added your logo or address to your custom report(s), your best option is to recreate your custom report by using the new default report, saving a copy and making your changes.

Still need help updating your custom reports? Contact us for a screen share and we can show you how to update your reports.

Downgrading

If you'd like to return to a previous version (downgrading your database), you'll need the latest backup of your database. A backup should have been created when you updated to the current version (automatically when using MS Access and manually when using SQL Server). Without a database backup, downgrading to the previous version may not be possible. Changes made to the database cannot be "uninstalled" as easily as the software.
