      I agree that documentation is not very good and/or complete, but, if you explain what you are trying to do, could be better.

        It's not a secret that the docs aren't good. Just a simple query on this forum would reveil that. But we have a great community so drop your questions here and we'll be glad to answer.

          I just wonder why NetMake doesn't seem to care.
          E.g. I've been trying to find out the scope of the sc_ajax_refresh_macro since the day I bought SC... :-)

              I'm not sure I follow you, but if it's a grid app you can skip the calculations in SQL.

              Create a field inside the grid app (Fields -> New Field) and in the onRecord event of the grid add this line:

              {field-created-in-your-grid-app} = {field1} + {field2} - {field3};

                I agree iviks!

                I've recently purchased it and finding it very frustrating to learn. Most of the responses from the support team have not been intelligible English or they have misunderstood the question, even when I've included multiple screenshots clearly outlining the issue.
                Then searching for commonly used words or macros in the Online help comes up with zero results, or messages in
                Surely, they could employ a natural English speaking person or two to provide better support and improve the online help.
                I'm almost regretting my purchase now.

                Looks like the best support will be here in this forum...thanks aducom and other members for helping others out
