FOR CLIENTS USING PREVIOUS VERSIONS OF APACE
If you are planning to upgrade to version 7, please be aware that we
have identified a small problem relating to large Recommendations or
Management Responses (over 500 characters) in the upgrade
procedure from version 6 to version 7. In some cases the original
upgrade routine can result in a Run Time error 62 when executing
Recommendation reports. The following upgrade procedure should be
downloaded by all clients who have not yet converted to release 7, so
it can be used in place of the previously supplied routine on their
upgrade CD issued in September 2008. For those who are able to, the
downloaded UPDT711 routine should be written onto the CD (in the
Update to 7.1.1 folder), replacing the previous routine and, when you
are ready for the upgrade, it can be run from the CD. For those who
cannot write the routine to the CD, then the Update to 7.1.1 folder
should be copied in its entirety to the LAN and the downloaded
replacement UPDT711 then copied into that LAN folder overwriting
the earlier version - at upgrade time the routine should then be run
from the LAN folder NOT the CD. Alternatively clients can contact us
and we will send a replacement CD containing the APACE software and
the corrected update procedure.
Update to 7.1.1 (V7.1.5)
Latest Upgrade to the previous release(V6.1.11)
A significant enhancement was made to the software developed
under Crystal Report Writer V9 incorporated within Version 6.1.1.
Please note that all future extracts of data from APACE will now be
directed to the C:\APACE\REPORTS\REPORTS2000.MDB database
instead of the C:\APACE\REPORTS\REPORTS.MDB.
Links to the latest version of the three programs for Version 6 can be
found below. These programs should be copied into the C:\APACE
directory overwriting the previous version. At the same time, to cater
for report creation utilising Access 2 and data extraction utilising
Access 2000, you should delete the file
C:\APACE\REPORTS\REPORTS.MDB from your PCs and install the
databases Reports.MDB and Reports2000.MDB found below into the
Please note that this procedure should only be performed if you have
already converted to Version 6.1.1!

Rebuilding Library Folder
If you have mislaid your Library disk/folder, you can use the link opposite
to copy down the Library application. You should establish a Folder on
your LAN to hold it and also copy the files C:\APACE\APACSTRT.TXT and C:\APACE\REPORTS\APACSTAT.DAT
from an existing APACE PC into the folder.
