20-Jan-2010 4.50 Released

  • Prevented exit screen crasher when open applied to open display file.
  • Give warning when displaying deleted records.  so as to manage expectations
  • Handle display and updating of variable length fields.
  • Handle variable length fields in key positioning

19-Jan-2010 4.40 Not Released

  • Added Procedure to SSLFU90M to read by relative record number.
  • Data area FUTILVER was being locked, thus preventing more than one job using VUE!!! Not needed anymore, so removed from SSLFU11R
  • Added F18 to display location of deleted records when reading sequentially by RRN (not keyed files!). This is a toggle, defaulting to not displaying deleted when entering program.
  • When refreshing with F5 or F18 and in sequential mode, we will now position to the first RRN already displayed rather than reading back a page of records.
  • Fix crasher when changing screen sized in Hex Mode.  It was reading too many records and then blosing the subfile!
  • Added ability to Add records (Take A from control field)
  • Binary 8 fields now handled correctly when writing to file.
  • Output conversion was not handling date/time correctly.  Better now!
  • Pressing F18 twice will now display the deleted record in RED
  • SSLFU14M will now retrieve deleted records. but not Variable length fields!
  • Fixed some positioning errors.
  • Added member name to open etc... (How DID I miss that??)
  • Blanked out control field after some operations to prevent confusion.
  • Fixed +/- positioning for ascending files.
