    There is a number formatting bug in this update for us - can you please check this as all our decimal numbers are inflated unless we apply number formatting to every single column in every single report.

  3. myDBR Team, Key Master

    What do you mean by "inflated"? Can you be more specific?

    What is the number number you expect and what is the number that you get? Can you shown a simple example with code and a screenshot?

    The reason we are asking is that we do not see any abnormal behavior.

    Please see the inbox at where I have described this in detail - it is like the program is ignoring the decimal separator from the database. Probably a language specific issue, I'm checking my inbox regularly for your reply.

    The issue is now fixed in the latest myDBR 6.3.0 build.

    Thank you for reporting the issue.

    Thanks for a quick response.

    The new features are quite interesting.

    Do the & http.get commands run client or server side?

    Are the results usable as inputs in the following parts of reports?

    Looking forward to play around with this.

    Both and http.get run from the server (you can already do this in the client via JavaScript). Both return the value from the called server. It is up to you to make something out of the return value.
