Adagio DataCare 9.3A


October 30, 2018



    ·    The Adagio Login dialog permits browsing to a UNC. The Create database button is hidden unless “/C” is included on the command line. New databases are created with the extension “ADB” or the extension used by existing modules in the selected Folder.

    ·    A “Backup” button has been added to the Adagio Toolbar. Backup Options select whether the button saves the module data or the entire database and whether exclusive access is required for the backup to proceed.

    ·    Backup options enable automatic or prompted backups prior to deleting history. You can choose the number of these backups that will be saved.

    ·    Refresh Sample Data function has been added to the Help menu. It allows you to refresh sample data to its original state at install time.

    ·    It is easier to choose the correct field from tables with large numbers of fields in the Column Editor. You can now sort the list, restrict the list using the data type you are searching for (Text, Date, Amount and Value), and type in some text likely to identify the field. Use the Select the Type option on the Select Fields dialog to show fields of that type.

    ·    Added an option to the On Success and On Failure tabs in the Company Profile to control the level of information in the log attached or appended to email sent by a job run. The option can be set to ‘Detailed’, ‘Summary’ or ‘Summary with detailed errors’. Use ‘Summary with detailed errors’ to make the log smaller and easier to find any errors. This option is supported by current versions of Adagio modules as of this release of DataCare. One version and in some cases two prior versions support this feature for some modules. Older versions do not support this feature.

    ·    History can now be deleted automatically. Added History tab to the Company Profile with options to control when and what to delete. Deleting history reduces the number of runs in history and the size of the history files, which can become quite large.

    ·    If the ‘Show details’ selection is changed when viewing runs in history, the selection is used when the Next/Previous buttons are clicked, overriding the selection saved in the Run. Useful if you want to view multiple runs in summary form.

    ·    Added new option ‘Only include runs without errors’ to the Delete History function. Use this option to save a record of past errors for comparison to any new errors that may occur, while still deleting history to reduce the overall number of runs in history (and the size of the history files, which can become quite large). Runs where errors were rebuilt are also saved. If you rebuild errors in DataCare, rather than in the modules, you will have a record of information such as accounts and transactions affected by rebuilding.

    ·    Updates have been made for use on Adagio Cloud.

    ·    DocStore data files (EP*) are now backed up when ‘Adagio Common Files/DocStore’ is selected in a job. Previously these files had to be added as additional files on the Backup tab in the Company Profile. These files should be removed from the additional files list to avoid backing them up twice. Note: DocStore PDF documents are not backed up - they should be backed up by some other method.

    ·    Improved logging in the Adagio Application Log (SDAPPLOG).

    ·    When a DataCare job is run using the /R command line parameter entries are added to the Application Log.

    Problems Fixed

    ·    When the ‘Compact indexed files’ option was on, the ‘Compact when free space is’ percentage of empty space to allow in files before compacting did not work on very large files in some cases. DataCare compacted the file regardless of the setting, significantly slowing down the integrity check.

    ·    The History Run report details were not sorted correctly in DataCare 9.2A.

    ·    Some messages were displayed when a DataCare job was run using /R that should not have been. DataCare waited for user input, causing a scheduled task to not complete. For these messages, DataCare will automatically select the default response and continue to completion.

    ·    After installing DataCare 9.2A on a new computer or server, or reinstalling DataCare, databases for newer versions of Adagio modules were not checked by DataCare jobs, requiring the modules to re-installed.
