Common Problems

Common problems in Version 4. There are a couple of bugs in version 4 you should know about. The Blood Pressure Reports are giving an error message. The Diastolic and Systolic are mistakenly reversed in the program. A few users have reported a problem previewing Reports in Windows XP. The reports print fine it is just in previewing. These bugs have been fixed in version 5.
