ProAPOD’s PDF Printing Plan Revised

ProAPOD intended to include a function that would enable its customers to click a single button to create PDF reports. The idea was to use procedures included in Excel 2013 for PDF so the customer would not have to rely upon third-party PDF software.

But after a serious attempt to include the proper code, it was discovered that there are too many unresolved issues in Excel 2013 that makes it almost impossible to maintain compatibility across a wide range of computers. Where on one computer the function performed perfectly, on other computers there were error alerts that prevented some of ProAPOD’s features to work correctly.

After much research, it was learned that problems like this are commonly encountered by others attempting to use Excel’s PDF reference library. And without a clear resolution provided, ProAPOD elected to postpone its plan until there is absolute assurance that the error messages can be prevented.

So for the meantime, ProAPOD customers will continue to use third-party PDF software to print their reports as a PDF. It is not difficult, but ProAPOD had just hoped to make it easier.

 

PDF Printing Update Coming to ProAPOD

ProAPOD Real Estate Investment Software is currently in the throws of updating the PDF printing function for all three of it’s real estate investing software solutions.

Along with some with some general house keeping and refreshing of the forms and toolbar commands, the primary focus is to make PDF printing easier so users can create a PDF report with less effort.

Although ProAPOD currently provides customers a way to print their reports as a PDF, it does require the customer to install a third-party PDF software program. And though highly efficient, these third-party programs have not been particularly easy for some customers to understand and easily use.

To make PDF printing easier, ProAPOD is recoding the procedures in each of it’s real estate investment software solutions. Once completed, the user will be able to simply select the real estate analysis and marketing reports he or she wants to create as a PDF and click one button. The rest will be fully automatic. The user will find the the PDF in the location on the computer he or she saved it completely ready to be distributed.

This PDF printing update, however, will only benefit customers using Windows Vista and Excel 7 or newer. Unfortunately, older versions of Windows and Excel are not compatible with the coding required to provide this update. Customers using Windows XP, for instance, will still have to rely upon third-party PDF software.

This update should be available by the end of October barring any unsuspected issues. If you have questions, please feel free to call me so we can discuss it further.

So You Know

ProAPOD provides three real estate analysis software solutions that are each concisely designed to make it easy for realtors and real estate investors to create rental property cash flow analysis and marketing reports.

 

 

The Print Preview Glitch Caused by Excel 2013 is Fixed

One of the important features provided by all ProAPOD real estate investment software solutions is the ability for users to easily preview the real estate analysis reports prior to printing.  From the release of ProAPOD in 2000 this has always the way it’s been. The user simply clicks Print Preview on our customized toolbar, selects the appropriate report , and instantly the selected report appears in a preview window.

About a week ago, however, it was brought to our attention by several customers using Excel 2013 that the Print Preview would hang in a perpetual loading motion that would not display the report. Worse still, that the window could only be closed by shutting down ProAPOD completely. This is not good.

But this was new to us  because ProAPOD has continued to perform perfectly in all aspects through Excel 2010, so, of course, we were highly concerned to uncover the problem and to resolve the issue.

After applying several suggestions made by others we discovered on the web without success, we continued to search until we found the culprit. Namely, that with Excel 2013 the VBA procedure that calls for print preview needed to be modified.

I’m happy to say that all three ProAPOD real estate investing software solutions have been tested in Excel 2013 and the Print Preview function now works perfectly.
