Turn Browser AutoFill OFF

From time to time we hear complaints about users getting to a certain field (like Client State or Zip Code) and all of a sudden ReloSpec seems to stop.  Why would ReloSpec choose that field to stop letting you enter information?

ReloSpec is NOT doing that.  It is  your browser!!!

The ‘AutoFill’ is a browser feature that constantly tries to automatically fill-in a field with information you have typed previously.  The problem is that if you have AutoFill for Forms turned ON, the browser may take a very long time to figure out what to enter for you.

So, turn OFF (or un-check) the AutoFill for Forms.

For Internet Explorer, do the following:

  1. Click the gear for settings in the upper-right
  2. Click ‘Internet Options’
  3. Click the ‘Content’ tab and in the AutoComplete section click ‘Settings’
  4. Un-check the box for FORMS; click OK, click OK

For Google Chrome, do the following:

  1. At the top right, click More More and then Settings
  2. At the bottom, click Show advanced settings
  3. Under “Passwords and forms,” uncheck “Enable Autofill to fill out web forms in a single click.”

For Mozilla Firefox, do the following:

  1. Click the Menu button  New Fx Menu and choose Options.Preferences.
  2. Select the Privacy panel
  3. In the drop-down menu next to Firefox will:, choose Use custom settings for history.
  4. Remove the check mark next to Remember search and form history.
  5. Close the about:preferences page. Any changes you’ve made will automatically be saved.

Updated Reports and Browsers

As you may know we have been doing a lot of work lately with the way reports are found and displayed.  Reaction to the new REPORTS format has been great!  It makes it much easier for new ReloSpec users to find the report they need while the more experienced users can click the ‘VIEW ALL REPORTS’ button to see all the reports they’re used to seeing.

Today we’re announcing that small updates such as adding the ‘Agent Requested’ and ‘Agent Generated’ fields to the ‘Scorecard – Agent’ report (soon) will be made first to those reports included in the new groupings of reports in the REPORTS page.

In addition, we’re happy to announce that the ReloSpec reports are now supported in the following browsers:

  • Internet Explorer (IE)
  • Google Chrome
  • Mozilla Firefox
  • Apple Safari

You may view the entire, unrestricted report in the browser of your choice.

How To Navigate ReloSpec Reports?

Reports, reports, reports.  ReloSpec has many reports, and it is sometimes hard to find the one you want.  Because of continuing requests the number has grown and made finding the right report more difficult.

Over time we have tried to identify records by the report name, which works most of the time but not always.  And, sometimes the same report may work for different needs.

What to do?  We are working on a totally new approach to ReloSpec reports.  Whereas in the past you would navigate the reports mostly by name only, we now are working on groupings of reports by categories.  For example, there is an ‘Agent Reports’ page listing an abbreviated list of the most popular reports for agents.  Another for ‘Offices’ and so on.

But, we need your help.  This project is only just getting started and the final result will be based on input from you.  There are two general areas.

  1. What categories of reports should be have?
  2. Within each category, what specific reports are needed?

To get you started we have added a beginning page on the ReloSpec Main Menu.  At the very bottom of the page is a link labeled “reports”.  Click the link and you’ll see what has been started.  The idea is to get those creative juices flowing, so let us know your thoughts/suggestions.

We want to make ReloSpec Reports a positive feature again and your input will help us get there sooner.  We look forward to hearing from you.

Report Images Help with Report Selection

For years, ReloSpec has had a growing number of great reports.  There are Standard and Advanced reports and many variations of each.  The good news is that the variations make it easy to have the report you need with the fields, filters and components you want.  The bad news is that, especially for people new to ReloSpec, with so many it is difficult to find the report(s) you need.

The REPORTS page now displays an image of the report in the right-had column.  And, if the image is difficult to read, you click the image and view the sample report in a larger format.  Over the next few days we’ll be adding an image for each of the Advanced reports.  There are more than 80 of them today.

The REPORTS page still includes a separate ‘View Sample’ link in the second column which will open a full PDF version of the report.  So, if the sample report has multiple pages you’ll still be able to view all pages if you want to.  And, you can still click the ‘Add to Favorites’ link and add the selected report to your list of Favorites.

We hope you’ll find these report images easy to use, and that they’ll be helpful in locating the report you need.  As always, if you need help locating the perfect report, let us know.  We’re here to help.

3349 numeric field overflow when using report generator

If you receive this error code while using report generator it means you need to update your current version of report generator.

  Report Generator How do I update Report Generator to a newer version? To update your Report Generator software to a new version, you must first know which version of Microsoft Access your Report Generator uses. The three possible versions of Microsoft Access are: 1) Access97, Access2000 or higher, or the Run-time version of Access97. To determine which version you are using, start Report Generater and look at the Main Menu page. The Microsoft Access version will be listed on the page. Once you know when version of MS Access you are using, do the following:

1. From the Main Menu of Relocation Specialist Web Version click UTILITY SETTINGS. The Utility Settings page will open.
2. From the Utility Settings page, click ‘Report Generator’. The Report Generator page will open.
3. Click the Report Generator link. The Report Generator login page will appear.
4. Click the link labeled ‘Report Generator (for use with MS Access97)’ if you are using MS Access97 or you have installed the Access Run-time version. Click ‘Report Generator for use with MS Access2000 or later’ if you are using MS Access2000 or later. The File Download box will appear.
6. Click SAVE, then save the file to ‘C:\Program Files\ReloSpec’ on your local hard drive. You will be replacing the file of the same name.
7. Close the Report Generator page. You will be returned to the Utility Settings page.NOTE: With Report Generator v7.0 or higher you will NO LONGER USE ‘Roster’ or ‘Roster 2’ to filter the records. Instead you will be using ‘Report Generator’ or ‘Report Generator 2’. All other steps are the same. (This is so that those who have not upgraded to the new version can continue using ‘Roster’ with the old version until they upgrade. Though ‘Roster’ and ‘Report Generator’ look and act the same, there are more fields in the ‘Report Generator’ report that are used by the new version 7.0 or higher.)
