Microsoft fixes Data Group Bug in Reports!
Woo Hoo!! Yippee!! Hooray!! I'm jumping for joy!!
I'm extremely excited to let everyone know that Microsoft has fixed the serious Data Group bug in VFP 9 SP2 reports which I blogged about here. The bug is officially described in the following Microsoft KB article, where you'll also find detailed instructions on how to get the fix.
I've heard lots of developers say they've held off upgrading to SP2 because of this one bug. So those of you that fall in this category .. it's time to upgrade!! There are no more excuses!!
Several people in the FoxPro Community, myself included, worked hard at getting this bug fixed and spent a lot of time testing it. Please ... I don't want to hear any bitching from anyone about how long it took to get this. Instead, let's all focus on the positive side which is the fact that Microsoft listened and provided a fix to a serious bug.
P.S. Read Rick Schummer's blog for more thoughts about this bug fix.
