I have had a premium license for several years, and use the software extensively.
Yesterday, I worked for hours on two linked reports for record editing. I have many of these working perfectly. The proc was nearly 100% final, and I added a command that I have never used: dbr.colstyle with the example param:
[overflow:hidden; white-space: nowrap; text-overflow:ellipsis; width: 200px;max-width: 200px;]
from the documentation.
Executed with no issue. I ran it and got the error message that the proc was not defined. Yes, it vanished. A lot of work lost.
So I rebuilt it from scratch. It calls a proc to do an edit, but no edits are done. I tried another similar proc that does edits and no edits are done. I have lost the ability to chain reports, it seems.
Do I reinstall? Using what method to preserve my years of work? That is the first issue. #2 is how do I avoid these sorts of deadly losses? I am now copying off the code to a text file, but this should not be necessary.
Thanks in advance.
