Release Notes

Teamstudio Export 4.5.1

Teamstudio Export 4.5.1 is a maintenance update to Export. It contains a number of fixes and minor enhancements.

The major new features of Export 4.5 include:

  • OLE Support - Export can now extract embedded Microsoft Office OLE objects. It supports Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents in both the older .doc, .xls and .ppt formats and the newer .docx, .xlsx and .pptx formats. Other document types will not be extracted. Please contact us if you need support for additional OLE object types.

  • Database Level Configuration - Some applications rely on hide-when formulas using @UserRoles to control which parts of a form should be visible. Earlier versions of Export always returned an empty list for @UserRoles, resulting in incorrect output. Since user roles are specific to a particular database, it doesn't make sense to configure these in the global Export configuration. Export 4.5 adds the ability to configure, for each database, which roles should be returned by @UserRoles so that you can tailor the output as required. These settings are stored in the config folder of the PDF or HTML output and will be re-used for any subsequent exports of the same database. Although rarely needed, you can also configure the value of @UserName and any notes.ini values that should be returned by @Environment.

Additional fixes are identified in the Fix List section below.

There is no need to re-archive your database to take advantage of any of the new features and fixes in Export 4.5.

Please refer to Installing Teamstudio Export for details on system requirements and installation. This page will be updated with any known issues and fixes as they become available.
