17-Oct-12
4.1.1
1) Fixed an issue with printed resource graphs having incorrect values. THe original values present in the print preview are correct, but the latter printed values would be incorrect.
2) Fixed an issue if you tried to print a resource based report more than once. On the second and subsequent prints, the resource graphs would not print.
3) Fixed an issue that the resource graphs would not scale correctly under certain circumstances. In some instances, the a resource graph may extend past the top of the auto-scaled graph.
30-May-12
4.1.0
Added another optional parameter to the function ‘GanttInitialise’. The new 11th optional parameter is a number to specify the number of seconds to automatically close any error messages and program prompts (value of ZERO means DISABLE AUTO CLOSE). Default is 0 which is the same behaviour as previous versions. This feature is useful when you have unattended automated report building.
5-Jan-12
4.0.7
Fixed issue with Resource charts being misaligned on Yearly, Monthly, and Quarterly based Gantt charts. Also, added warning for Access 2007/2010 users with Resource graphs if the sub-report is not the correct size.
17-Apr-11
4.0.6
Fixed issue with Gantt charts with labels would stop during the build.
7-Apr-11

28-Jun-10
4.0.3

5-Nov-09
4.0.2
Fixes an issue with incorrect positioning of milestone activities. This error was introduced with version 4.0.1 and baseline modifications.
28-Oct-09
4.0.1
Major Update:
1) New function – added baseline functionality to the Gantt Chart Builder. This allows each Gantt row to display 2 bars, one for the current start/finish dates and another for the original or baselined dates.
2) Fixed an issue with using fill patterns not correctly displaying the % complete bar.
3) Improved error handling when manual date ranges have been used and the Gantt bar itself falls completly outside those date ranges. The builder would produce an error and stop under these circumstances. This fix improves the warning message and resolves this error.
03-Apr-09
3.0.2
Fixed an issue with Stacked based reports generating an error.
08-Mar-09
3.0.1
Major Update:
1) New function – added resource profiling to the Gantt report. This allows for a resource profile graph to be drawn after the Gantt report
2) New function – added interface to allow you to draw borders on the Gantt bars. The interface controls whether to display or not and also the colour of the border. Refer to the User manual (Section 2.2.1) or sample reports for further details.
3) New feature – added interface to allow you to control the order the grid lines are drawn. The default (as per earlier releases) was that the major grid lines were drawn on top of the minor grid lines. This interface allows you to reverse this order. Refer to the User manual (Section 2.2.1) or sample reports for further details.
4) Fixed a bug with the Gantt based report not working correctly with parameterised queries (for example, a query that uses a form parameter).
5) Fixed an issue with moving back and forth between design mode to preview mode. After the first switch the Gantt report would not build correctly. This has been fixed in this release. Users need to add the Report_Close event, as detailed in the User manual and also in the sample reports.
11-Mar-08
2.5.2
Fixed an issue with weekly based Gantt bars not having the correct alignment with the header.
08-Mar-08
2.5.1
Major Update: New Function – Added the ability to display stacked Gantt bars for standard tasks (see user manual and new interface information in sample database). Fixed an issue with “Month By Week” incorrectly generating the header if one of the  task start dates was before the first Monday of the month (eg task start 01/01/2008). Fixed a minor error with the calculation of the length of some Gantt bars under certain conditions. Enhanced the label layout options on the interface ‘ConstructGanttBar’ and the new interface, above, ‘ConstructGanttBarStacked’, specifically for the date based options. Changed the layout (number of sub-divisions) on some of the Gantt date bands to make the sub-division a little more intuitive (ie Quarterly changed from 4 to 3 so that each is now a month). Note, this change WILL AFFECT your current reports.
22-Feb-08
2.4.0
New Function – added two new date bands to the builder. The new bands are both “monthly by week” with slightly different layout styles. These are both accessed via the same mechanism in the interface, see the sample database for examples.
18-Feb-07
2.3.0
New Function, allowed the Gantt Configuration table to have more than 1 row, and added a configuration parameter to the ‘GanttInitialise’ function to allow you to define which record will be used. This allows you control over the colours to be used based on some other information you have stored or calculated. Also, updated the Configuration Form to handle multiple records.
20-Oct-05
2.2.0
Added watermarks to the evaluation version of the software.
12-May-05
2.1.1.
Fixed an “Object Library Feature Not Supported” error under some installations of Access 2000 and 20002/XP. This did not always happen but under certain circumstances would appear. The issue deals with late/early binding of data objects. Note, there are no functional changes in this release.
3-Dec-04
2.1.0
Major Update: Added function and interface to allow continuation markers to be added to bars if they exceed the manually provided start and finish dates. Also, fixed a bug associated with charts that has entries the exceeded the manually entered start and finish dates.
30-Oct-04
2.0.2
Major Release: This release contains some major functional changes, detailed below:
  • Added functions and interfaces to allow daily based charts down to one hour intervals. These new intervals include “DayBy12Hour”, “DayBy8Hour”, “DayBy4Hour”, “DayByHour”, “HourBy30Minute”, “HourBy15Minute”,  and “HourBy5Minute”.
  • Enhanced the interface so that the user/report designer can control the labels shown on the chart’s header instead of the standard JanFeb…. These are controlled via the  two new interface’SetMonthLabels’ and ‘SetWeekLabels’.  
  • Enhanced the interface ‘ConstructGanttHeader’ so it now takes two new optional parameters. These now allow you to control the font size of the chart’s header text.
29-Jul-04
1.10.0
Major Update: Added function and interface to allow weekly based charts to have the weekends shaded. Also, enhanced the interface to allow the “labels too long” warning message to be suppressed. Also, fixed and enhanced error checking for label functions.

6-May-04
1.7.8
Fixed an issue with monthly charts not drawing the bars accurately when only 1 or 2 months spanned the entire chart.
11-Apr-04

Major Update: Added ADO support for Access 2000 and 2002 versions. Also, added capability to define the range of the Gantt chart as part of the interface function. Therefore, you can now specify the date range, or have it calculated for you.
29-Oct-02
1.6.2
Corrected a bug dealing with positioning the Gantt bars for some cases of weekly and daily chart types. Also, removed the need to have the table filed names “Start Date” and “Finish Date”. These are now automatically derived from the report definition and can now be any name.
