A single-click on the text and a double-click to launch, or
A double-click on an empty space in the cell

should be all that's necessary. I'll fix it if it is not behaving correctly

It works, but the "empty space" portion of the cell is difficult to click on.
Is it possible to launch the file with the keyboard?

A good place to double-click is on the first column, the item number

with Ver.0.9.20
A double-click on an empty space in the cell worked a couple of times but then no more
now it's back to just edit item name

For those interested, a typical application of SQLNotes could be as a task management, work done/billing solution for consultants paid by the hour (can include lawyers)

See this link for a detailed description:
http://www.sqlnotes....e/posts/Default.aspx
It's nice to see an application of the programme  :up: :)

EDIT: just got that last post  :up:

It doesn't work when I double click on the first column (and there is no item number in the column when the item consists of a linked documents.)

Fixed. Clicking on the number column now works even if empty (it should not be empty, that is a long-standing bug that I need to fix. F5 to refresh and you'll get the number)

Ok, I have got past the initial fear and I too am impressed.

Thanks! While it can, SQLNotes is much more than to manage tasks. It is a flexible database and as such can handle all sorts of information management.

Ironically, I find that I quite like the name SQLNotes! I seem to be in the minority... I'm slowly playing around with it and like what I see so far. Thanks for letting us in on this, Pierre  :Thmbsup:

Darwin : SQLNotes is not bad at all. Maybe just a bit geeky for some... I guess

You're welcomed. I'm updating the SQLNotes wiki (all can contribute BTW) to add real-life examples and applications: http://sqlnotes.wikispaces.com/

Cool! Thanks for the link - I probably wouldn't have noticed it otherwise. Reading through it now.

This is getting more and more interesting. My wife runs her own business and we're frequently trying to come up with ways to generate bills and invoices. Of course, she's a lot less geek oriented than I am so she may not be as excited as me...

Once set-up, it should not feel too geek for her, I'm sure.
I've got many customers with little experience with PC and can use it quite effectively.
I'll also be adding a locked down mode (or user vs design mode) where users will not be able to change too many things (i.e. not screw things up) (fields, grids, etc)

The SQLNotes wikispace has been updated to include an example of how SQLNotes can be used to easily generate invoices, using it "mail-merge" capabilities (we call it HTML template based exports):

Pierre,

I'm looking at SQLNotes now for the document tracking database, as we discussed in another thread. I must say, though, the proposed pricing is more than I had expected. That's not to say it is out of line with what it should be -- I guess I just didn't know the price range for this type of application. I might have to take another hard look at Access for my database since I already own that!

Thanks.

Jim

It all depends on how you value your own time...
Also the price is very approximate and will be in line with comparable products. May end-up being less. Finally, contributing beta testers, translators and solution providers get a free licence!

PPLandry, I'm ready to continue trying out my basketball database...do you think you can send me that file you set up?  Thanks.  I was trying to follow what you wrote earlier but I got confused, and now I've run out of time (here at work).  Thanks.

I've updated the wikispace to include a detailed step by step tutorial on how to do this:

Don't forget to get the latest SQLNotes build. That sample is now part of the default template. File > New to create a new file based on the template
