Changes and Improvements in Timekeeper version 2.14
12 March 2004
This document describes the changes to Timekeeper released
as Timekeeper version 2.14 in March 2004. The most important change
is compatibility with Access 2000 and later. Some of you have
had Access 2000 versions of Timekeeper for some time but this
the first time I have provided them on the web.
Fixes in the Program
Newly entered members could disappear. Changes were made in
the Member, Organization and Site forms to fix one possible cause
of this problem. I am not certain that was the only cause.
Fixed a problem where a null Organization address in report
headers would cause Timekeeper to crash.
Fixed a problem in the Assignment form where a null Last Name
would cause a crash when entering credits.
Fixed a problem in the Assignment form which under Access 2000
caused Timekeeper to hang the second time the form was used. This
problem did not exist under Access 97.
Changes to the Program
A new menu item, Current Database, was added under the Help
menu. It gives the full file name of the user data attached to
Changes to Reports
Sorting by first and last name was added to the Services with
Added some new versions of existing reports using larger fonts.
Changes to the Utility
In fix dates the dates 1900 to 1909 are converted to 2000 to
Added Convert to File under the View menu. This function converts
all of your user data to a simple text file. The primary purpose
is to transfer data to the Internet Timekeeper.
Timekeeper version 2.14 was created using Access 2002. The
files were converted to the Access 2000 format for everyone who
wants to use them with Access 2000 or later. The files were converted
to Access 97 format for those who want to use the run-time-only
version of Access 97.
The utility and the program recognize database version 1.3
and 2.1 as being up to date. They will work with existing Timekeeper
1.36 data without conversion and it is possible have both version
1.36 and version 2.14 share the same user data.
