New Features:

  • Increased the selectable Form options from 4 to 5

You can have up to five (5) selectable options. These options do not affect the price and only present added selectable features for the product ad such as a size: Small, Medium, Large, X-Large, and XX-Large or colors option like Blue, Red, Green, Yellow, and Orange.

Upgrading from Versions 3.0 - 3.4 to Version 3.5
All the key data form version 3.x such as the Categories, Site Themes, Support Pages, and FTP Account settings can be imported into the new version 3.5 via the Import utility . First export the data from the older 3.x version using the Export utility and then import the data into the new 3.5 version using the Import utility. The Import / Export utilities can be accessed via the Product Design sheet.

Since a new database field called "User 5" was added to the Product Database sheet, you need to do the following to import your data into the new program.

  1. Using the older version of the program, export your Product Database data to a file using the Utilities function on the Product Design sheet. The exported file will have a file name similar to Product Database 10-07-2005.xls.
  2. Open this exported file and insert a single column between the User 4 and Quantity Column. Do this by selecting column N and selecting Excel's Insert >> Columns function from the top menu.
  3. Select cell N2 and type in "User 5" without the quotation marks, then save and close the file.
  4. Switch back to the new XLEcom version 3.5 file and re-import this Product database file into the program.

The added User 5 column can be seen in the following screen shot image.
