  17. The new tab is all ready to use.

Next we will need to create the new fields in the Detail Extract tab in preparation for an updated version of DX, which should be ready in the next week or so.

Though the programmer is still working on the code for Detail Extract, we wanted to make sure everyone was ready before rolling out the new executable.  The goal will be to form a screen that looks like this:

to a screen that looks like this:

Which basically means, making room for the new fields and adding them into your system.  Now, there is no easy way to make room for the new fields besides grabbing each field, one by one, and moving them, approximately 3 rows down.

As before, if you prefer to have us do this for you, just open a support ticket and we’ll make sure it gets done.  For those of you who prefer to do it yourselves, just follow the steps below to add this tab to your installation of AdmitGold.  If you have any questions or encounter any issues, please don’t hesitate to open up a support ticket as well.

  1. Log in to AdmitGold as MASTER or equivalent.
  2. Activate the Extract tab.
  3. Right-click in a blank area and select the Screen Design… option.
  4. Scroll down to the bottom row of fields and methodically move them down as applicable to make room.
  5. Create and position the new fields and expressions using the table below as your guide.  Note, the fields need to be created exactly as listed for Detail Extract to find them.
