                          Server 11g)  Comments: When using
                          properties in ORA DB Profile connection, PB is
                          unable to find datawindow table and select

   21586   742546         Customer has a report in PB 10 and has
                          migrated it to PB 12.5.2.  A column with
                          autosize height on when viewed in Print
                          Preview mode cuts off the bottom of letters
                          such as 'y' and 'g'.   As this worked in
                          previous versions this should work in PB
                          12.5.2.    Tested the customer's datawindow
                          and the change occurs in PB 11.5.1, previous
                          versions of PB 10, 10.5.x and 11.x do not cut
                          off the bottom of the letters.

                          according to Microsoft is a known Problem but
                          therefore customers are asking to re-design
                          the menu implementation of classic PB IDE. In
                          the PB. NET IDE this is working fine since we
                          use underlying MS IDE.

                          the footer not being displayed properly when
                          setredraw is used.  That issue was fixed and
                          the customer was running in build 4015 with no
                          problems.  Then he upgraded to the latest EBF
                          4953, and started seeing issues again. The
                          original testcase seems to work, so a new
                          testcase ( is submitted. The
                          2 computed fields in the footer will show the

                          and the yellow is the ‘For All()’ - they
                          should be the same. Also the “SYS – Indicates
                          a system generated entry” is not displayed
                          when setredraw is checked but does display

                          does not change and remains in its original

   21586   738358         The issue is an extension of CR 726695 on
                          useDefaultKeyboardLayout=yes and inconsistent
                          behavior.  For a certain datawindow after
                          clicking on a first column and switching to
                          Russian and entering some characters then
                          clicking on a second column; the keyboard
                          stayed in Russian instead of switching to the
                          default US input.  But on the same datawindow
                          the same test without clicking on the second
                          column but clicking on the fourth column the
                          keyboard switched to default as expected.

   21586   737888         When customer was installing Infomaker 11.5
                          they were given a new installer to allow them
                          to give the person installing the option to
                          included an imr parameter option for setup.exe
                          to include a record file such as
                          "imsetup.iss". Customer used this to give the
                          option to install the Database Write option or
                          not in a silent install.   Although they were
                          given a special installer, they had been told
                          that this would be implemented in future
                          versions of IM.  From the old case notes, this
                          appears to have been implemented by a PB_SWAT
                          team email exchange and it doesn't appear as
                          though a CR was opened.   Customer would like
                          to use this option when installing IM 12.5.2.

   21586   737710         GetFullState on a datastore with a crosstab
                          datawindow object returns a -1 in PB 12.1 but
                          does not in PB 12.5.  Works with other
                          datawindow presentation styles such as

                          with  Extensibility.IDTExtensibility2

   21586   736934         Commit command returns 0 and looks like it
                          works successfully. However, when I check the
                          database using SQL Plus or SQL Developer, the
                          new record is not there. If you wait a few
                          minutes the record will appear.  Customer
                          thinks the autocommit of the data source
                          eventually kicks in.
