Bug Fixes in Build 188.8.131.5286
|Severity||Reference||Description||Existed Since Version||Resolution|
|Moderate||15391||The User ID field is not visible on the connection dialog box after a user changes the 100% display setting to a larger setting.||2.5||The User ID field is visible on all display settings.|
|Minor||16045||The Discussion Forums menu item exists for the deprecated Aginity Forums.||2.4||The menu item was modified to go to the Aginity Community web forums.|
|Minor||16306||When importing an Excel file, the Data Import Wizard stops loading rows from the file on the first blank date field. Success is logged for the import job in this case.||2.5.1||Blank date fields are correctly processed, and an whole Excel file is properly imported.|
|Major||APD-5627||When importing DB2 tables from an external database, an error may occur indicating that Length cannot be less than zero.||Install the DB2 client on the client machine so you can successfully connect to a DB2 database.|
When importing data that includes dates from Excel using the Data Import Wizard, the Data Import Wizard fails to properly identify dates automatically and fails to load dates when manually configured to do so.
|Set the column in Excel to text instead of date so you can load the data.|
|Moderate||APD-1939||A DDL (delta) script generated by the Compare Schemas tool fails with an error if the same table in the source and target schemas contains a foreign key to different tables. The error occurs because when applying the foreign-key update to the target schema, the script first drops the old referenced table in the target schema and then attempts to drop the foreign key to the previously dropped table.||Choose one of the following two workarounds, depending on whether you prefer to generate one or two delta scripts.
Workaround 1: Generate one delta script
Workaround 2: Generate two delta scripts
|Moderate||APD-6633||When working with multiple schemas with views and tables that have the same name, the population of fields in the drop-down list does not respect the default schema selection.||Avoid using the drop-down list when working with multiple schemas with duplicated view/table names.|
|Moderate||APD-6835||When selecting vertical blocks of text (as opposed to full lines) and using the Make selection UPPER/lower case function, the selected text is shifted vertically.||Manually adjust the lines.|
|Moderate||APD-5471||Installation of Workbench on Microsoft Server 2012 fails on the prerequisites.||Do a "Add Features" for .NET 3.5 (which includes 2.0) in the Server Manager.|
|Moderate||APD-5973||You cannot import from views when using the remote database import from Microsoft SQL.||N/A|
|Minor||APD-6163||In Standard mode in the Output area, some SQL statements are inadvertently omitted. However, they are correctly displayed in Grid mode.||N/A|
|Trivial||APD-3711||When the field type is Date, the year 0 (for example, 0000-01-01) causes an error “Year, Month, and Day parameters describe an un-representable DateTime.”||Either cast the date as a VARCHAR or do not use the year 0.|
