January 2016 - Version 17.4B

This version of Estate-a-Base resolves the following issues that appeared in Version 17.4A:

•  In the Forms topic, when printing the back sheet of a form from print preview, an error message appeared. In this version, the back sheet will be printed as expected.

•  The Value of Estate fields in Tab C did not appear in the appropriate layout when the Zoom in feature was used. In this version, the fields all appear as expected.

•  When generating documents in the Tasks topic, documents appeared for other records. In this version, only the selected documents for the current record appear.

•  The Local Assets Contacts Database displayed local contacts form other records. In this version, the database displays the contacts for the current record only.
