PROGRAMMING CHANGE LOGS

October 8, 2018

Version: .984

An additional error-check was placed in the entry record SAVE command to warn users that Bred By Exhibitor entries with foreign registrations are not permitted by AKC rules.

As with all other SAVE command warnings, the notice can be ignored.
September 14, 2018

Version: .983

Substantial refinements were made to the AKC National Owner-Handler Series to provide correct selections when the "Same Entry, Next Event" process executes while posting event entry records. Additional corrections were made to the "Process from Text" routines to properly assign the AKC NOHS selections from online entry data.
August 28, 2018

Version: .981

Corrections were made to the email notifications warning of entry limits on events that did not have limits, and vice-versa.

For email notifications on entries where the AKC National Owner-Handler Series is offered, the status is now always displayed as YES or NO. In this way, if exhibitors intended, but forgot to enter the AKC NOHS, the No Status will serve as a warning / notification.
April 18, 2018

Version: .973

Due to the USPS again revising their public Zip Code lookup webpage, it has become necessary to abandon the USPS public Address Verification process in favor of using the USPS Business API lookup webpage process. The USPS Business API lookup system requires free registration for acquiring a required Username to utilize the API.
The required reprogramming has now been substantially completed. The results are outstanding. The average address lookup and verification time has gone from about six seconds to under two seconds.
April 1, 2018

Version: .972

A major bug was discovered in the Transfer-Of-Class screen. When a day of event class transfer is made, the correct SAVE function was mistakenly assigned to the wrong routine several months ago when some screen revisions were performed. The correct function has now been restored. There is no workaround for performing class transfers.
——————————————————————————
Fixed the event results routine for assigning the Award of Merit (AOM), where the awards were not posting correctly to the results database.
March 30, 2018

Version: .972

The AKC has now published examples of Judges Worksheets and Judges Books for Obedience Trials classes that will be effective May 1, 2018. The system changes will be performed to conform to the new formats.
March 5, 2018

Version: .968

A bug was fixed where output reports would sometimes replace breed names with "All Breeds."

Duplicate record checking has been enhanced for the AKC Point Schedule database with color warnings. The routine that automates the adding of large numbers of point scedule records was improved to omit duplicate records.
February 8, 2018

Version: .965

An optional checkbox was added to the armband printing function to include ring descriptions when printing armbands.
February 4, 2018

Version: .965

A substantial revision was made to the optional graphics systems for the armband printing function. All display anomalies were corrected. Graphic sizes were increased slightly.

The drop-down menu for graphic selection on each side of the standard armband has been expanded from 8 options to 18 options for graphic files.

These same design changes and improvements were also made to the Green Version of the Exhibitor Confirmation Letters.
January 27, 2018

Version: .965

Added AM / PM designators to lines printed on the hard-copy conformation page lists.

For example: SATURDAY AM and SATURDAY PM for days that have events in the morning and afternoon (when setup accordingly in the catalog record).
January 16, 2018

Version: .964

Increased the size of the Obedience and Rally field that contains the summary of classes and entry numbers on the combined Judging Book Cover sheet. A very large number of class types can overfill the previous smaller field size.
January 14, 2018

Version: .964

The AKC has revised their website stucture again which has impacted the system lookup functions for dog verifications.

Several routines have been improved to conform to the new URLs that the AKC uses for the dog record lookup functions.
——————————————————————————
Improvements were made to the Exhibitor Index generation process. There were errors when the alpha header option was selected.
Also, an option was added to control the automatic wrapping of lines when needed.
