AccessDesigner 3.51

Version 3.5.2307.1102

Changes in version 3.51

Import from excel charts

  • The "e" in the column "individual key" (as used in plans provided by EVVA) is supported at import
  • The identification of individual keys has been improved
  • Individual keys imported from a "detailed view" caused an error at shipping the order - resolved
  • Neglected central cylinder information are now shown as error instead of warning
  • Indentical central cylinder informations are merged whereever possible
  • Positions without number are now imported as keys or cylinders instead of headlines
  • Identification of individual key quantities (on multiple appearance) has been improved
  • wrong cell content leaded to strange cylinder / key numbers - resolved
  • Error "NullReferenceException" on imported plans resolved
  • User defined formats like "0##" are supported
  • No further warning about missing number if central cylinders are merged


  • Invalid characters (in key / cylinder number) are reported as error and no longer replaced automatically
  • Every change to the plan requires a new validation before shipping the order
  • Inevitable locking combination in case of feasibility check/offer are changed from error to warning to permit the shipping of the request
  • Order type 'feasibility check/offer': no validation of product codes
  • Spaces in key / cylinder number are removed and no longer replaced by a dot

Technical data

  • Import of calculation data: no validation of the subnumber if the subnumber is set to "."
  • Technical header: possibility to enter calculation presets
  • Extension to the print out: title of document and header informations (defined per organisation)
  • Trying to export keys marked as "sequential number required" without the sequential number leads to an error message

  • Incomplete import from our DAF data structure resolved
  • Door-number without room description are now exported correctly
  • Export to Excel chart: now correct language in headers 
  • Translations (especially swedish) optimized and enriched
  • Issue in locking combination after "replace placeholders" resolved
  • Configuration: disabled elements now invisible
  • Error message on change of cells in PlanDesigner resolved
  • Transposed view: "Has individual key" now as a checkbox available                                                                                             
  • Shortcut "Ctrl" + "N" acts now consistently and correct

Version 3.5.2101.2101

Resolved problems:

  • "Search/Replace": Replacing a 'minus' (-) by any other character resulted in the loss of locking functions in central cylinders
  • Synchronisation of change requests to an order from an subordinate organization did not work properly
  • Navigation: selecting a main option activates the first selection
  • Checking for unmeant functions: truncated lists of functions (> 8000 characters) are now transmitted in full length. The check is executed only for cylinders which have not been ordered already.
  • Technical datas are reliable disponible for all keyed alike positions
  • Data requests to very large charts resulted sometimes in memory exceptions
  • Singular occuring problems when shipping an order ("Object changed by another user") are resolved


  • Missing offer number leads no longer to a warning
  • Recognition of individual profile systems has been optimised
  • Screen texts have been modified in some cases, some tooltips have been added
  • At "Replace Placeholder" the number of blocks is displayed. A not integral value indicates an error in settings (i.e. wrong number of lines selected)
  • In the tab "orders" (left listing) the name of the user who has shipped the order can be displayed
  • Technical data: importing datas in a plan where the exclusive profile number is "." (dot) is now possible without error message
  • Additional warnung when shipping an order to a non-EVVA-plan
  • The headers of the tabs "order elements", "additional articles" and "attachments" indicate the number of items (tab "orders"). Empty tabs are incative.

Version 3.5.2006.301

  • In some cases the validation "is EVVA plan" failed when importing DAF files.
  • Creating "keyed alike" functions updates also central locking functions.
  • Manual renaming of positions with placeholders sometimes led to wrong results.
  • After copying a plan the "current order" could not be set correctly.
  • Invalid mail addresses from import led to errors in data request.
  • Error message on trying to export a plan into a locked excel file optimized.
  • Update framework of the web methods to .NET40/.NET45.
  • The column "surcharges" is no longer available for the list of plans. Therefore also the error when using a "%" in a search criterium is avoided.
  • In excel export the owner is now display in the header informations.
  • Renaming keys or cylinders to other existing positions also synchronizes technical data (if present).
  • Deleted logos are no longer taken as default for new plans.
  • Help content is availale in French.

  • Improved status information in the event that the AccessDesigner server is unavailable
  • Production data: Profile information is always shown in the first position with page breaks


ERROR FIXES (already partly in Version 3.4)

  • SILCA-DAT - inaccurate limit values were displayed for some profile systems
  • Redundant entries in the message box with "intelligent insertion"
  • Area check only if key / cylinder number represents an area specification
  • Optimisation of the area check in relation to the associated text fields (door number, room description, function description)
  • Individual keys could be subsequently "created" for already ordered items without an individual key
  • Inaccurate validation result, "Missing profile system" for KWD imports
  • Incorrect KWD files resulted in an infinite loop when importing  
  • KWD import - cylinder order did not match the initial chart
  • Validating or similar actions while loading charts caused errors
  • Restoring a chart from an auto-saved version after disconnection caused an error message to appear
  • Occasional errors when making notes on locking combinations
