Load Bank Statement now supports .qbo and .ofx files
Transaction entry tax code behaviour: Changing tax code in detail entry now prefers to keep the same net unless there is a good reason to keep the same gross (such as the transaction was imported from bank statement). You can force MoneyWorks to retain the same gross when changing the tax code by option-tabbing out of the tax code field.
Change to product buy price behaviour when purchasing: New option to control whether the buy price of a product is updated every time the product is purchased. This is a new checkbox on the Buy tab of the product record "Update price whenever purchased", on by default.
Advanced Replace can now operate on Product.Flags
New intrinsic function: SetFlag(value, flagsToSetInValue). Useful to set flags in Product.Flags using Advanced Replace. E.g Set Flags to SetFlag(Flags, #400000) sets the flag that controls the new "Update price when purchased", turning the checkbox off (because of reverse logic of this particular flag).
New intrinsic function: ClearFlag(value, flagsToClearInValue). Useful to clear flags in Product.Flags using Advanced Replace. E.g Set Flags to ClearFlag(Flags, #400000) clears the flag that controls the new "Update price when purchased", turning the checkbox on.
Deposit on Order: Tax code on deposit now respects the Name tax code override
Deposit on Order: The tax code of the deposit product is now respected
Vista printer selection: We now update a form's print settings every time it is printed. This means that on Windows, a change of printer in the Print dialog will stick without having to visit the Printer settings in the Page Setup dialog. This change is necessary because Microsoft has removed the printer selection feature from Page Setup in Windows Vista.
New localisations for Fiji and Sth Africa (charts of accounts and tax names)
Relational searching: It is now possible to get unions and intersections of selections that start from different sources. This is achieved using intersection and union operators. Having found one selection in the target file, you save that selection using the push operator (^), then start finding a new selection in the target file. Finally, apply the desired operator to combine the new and previously-saved selection. The operators are postfix notation: ^ push, + union, * intersect). e.g. [Transaction:transdate >= from and transdate <= to and type = `DI@`][Detail]^[Product:Supplier=supplier_code][Detail]* -- find details for invoices in date range, push result; find details for products for supplier; intersect 2 detail selections to get details for products for supplier in invoices in date range.
Relational searching: When the field linking one file to another is ambiguous, it is now possible to explicitly specify which field to use. Where necessary, two terms of the same file may be used. E.g. to go from a selection of payments to invoices they pay, use [Transaction:ourref="blah"][Payments.CashTrans][Payments.InvoiceID][Transaction]
Relational searching in report for-loops: It is no longer necessary to construct the relational search using string arithemtic in order to incorporate variables into the search expression. E.g. ="[transaction:transdate < '" + to_date + "']" can now be done simply as [transaction:transdate < to_date]

Report writer: A problem with Show Accumulator changing the accumulated valued for calculated columns is fixed.

Include Unposted is now available in multi-user mode for Bank Reconciliation, Account Enquiry, and reports.
Invoices in the Batch Debtor Receipts and one-off invoice receipt entry screens can now be sorted. Very useful if you have a high volume of receivables.

You can now import payments-on-invoices that include negative pay amounts against credit notes (provided the total payment amount is positive)
On Mac, you can now make proper internet shortcuts for the moneyworks:// URL scheme and click them to make a connection.
How to make a shortcut:
In Safari Bookmarks, click the + icon;
Type the address for your shortcut in the form described in /support.faq.php?art=url. This will most usefully be a Datacentre-style url, e.g. moneyworks://rowan:email@example.com:6699?doc=Acme%20Widgets%20Ltd
Note that you can omit the password for the document if you have already stored the password in your Keychain (see below)
You can now start a connection by clicking the bookmark.
You can also drag this bookmark to the Finder to make a double-clickable shortcut document, however, Safari will create this document with a file extension of .inetloc, and this will not work due to a bug in the Mac OS X Finder (currently under investigation by Apple). You can make it work by simply renaming the file extension to .webloc. Double-click it to start a connection.
[Datacentre] Keychain is now supported on Mac for Datacentre logins. (MoneyWorks stores the server's IP address rather than its name in the Keychain, so you will need to use a dotted-decimal IP in any shortcuts you make so that it matches).
There is now an Update If Exists option for importing accounts. If you change the departmentalisation or type of an account, that will be ignored, but you can import changes to Categories, Accountant's Code, Description, Tax code, P&L account, and bank account number. This means that you can make changes on a copy of a data file then transfer those changes over.
The database is no longer locked for all users when one user is looking at the invoice they have just made in Bill Job.
Quotes, POs and SOs now remember your preferred colour
When addressing an email, you can now add all email addresses for a selection of names, instead of just one at a time.
The behaviour of type-selection in the account choices window is now much better: in particular, if you leave the choices list sorted by description it will fall back to treating what you type as a code if no match is found in the description column. Also if you type an account code that is departmentalised then bring up the choices, then the department list for the account will already be highlighted.
Dialogs for dept/group management are all now resizable.
The accountant's export command now has a reminder to tell accountant the username/password when user is sending a password-protected document in MoneyWorks format.
There is a (currently hidden) option to update ship quantities for a selection of Sales Orders. Select the sales orders, choose Ship Orders, then hold down the Option key (Mac) or Shift Key (Win) in the dialog box and the Process button will change to Update. Click it with the key held down to update the ship quantities on the orders en-masse, from the top down.
The lines on reports (underscores, overscores etc) should now look better (thinner) when previewed/printed (Mac)
decimal-aligned columns in reports now get right-aligned headings
There is a new preference option to turn off the "Update ship quantities?" query you get when opening an existing Sales Order with backordered products.
Changed the StockValue column display (if you have added it to the Products list) to show actual stock value rather than average value.
The A and B budget tool icon is now a pop-up menu since having an A and a B icon confused people.
The NumToText function now takes an optional format argument. The format is a number from 0 to 13 which denotes the format to use for the number. See the Apply Format popup in the calculation box to figure out the number you need (0 is 0;-0, 1 is 0.00;-0.00, 2 is 0;(0) etc).
Printing and fonts on Mac: MoneyWorks will now always override a printing font preference set to Geneva, and change it to Helvetica. This is because Geneva, when printed, comes out with extremely ugly letter spacing, particularly on OS X. Also, for a new installation on OS X, the default list view font will be Lucida Grande 10, not Geneva 9.
Reduced the volume of the sounds on Mac by 5dB (already did this on Windows for 4.1.2)
Custom movements in reports (unsupported): If there is a file in the same folder as the report with the same name but with a ~ at the start, then the columns in the ~ report are used to define the format for showing transactions in the report. The ~ report should contain just calculation columns. These calculations may reference the transaction and detail fields. Will be properly supported in v5.
The 4.1.4 export syntax allows the 'filename' parameter to contain formatting information that specifies what is to be exported:
sortField can be included to sort the export by that field
sortField can have a "-" appended to specify descending sort
formatstring can specify what to export. Everything in the format string is returned verbatim except for anything inside [...] which is treated as an expression which can reference the fields of the file being exported. Thus if you want tab-delimited, then put tabs between the expressions. You can use metacharacters \t \r \n \xHH (hex) or \\. Note that since Applescript expands the same metacharacters, you are best to use meta-metacharacters in applescripts, e.g. \\t \\r \\x0a etc
same as usual
export in usual format but sorted descending by code
export code and phone number separated by a comma with lines delimited by a Return character
as above, but fields are quoted, and line delimiter is MSDOS-style
exports account codes in banklink format
Added ?path option for importing and exporting on Windows: If file path stars with ?, use it as default but put up a dialog box (the given filename extension in the path will be respected)
MoneyWorks 4.1.5 incorporates fixes for two bugs that were present in v4.1.4:
1. The General Deparmental (nz) chart of accounts was found to be faulty. Specifically, the Profit and Loss account attached to IN and EX accounts did not exist. 4.1.5 will automatically fix this condition.
2. A problem with the improved behaviour of the account/depratment choices window has been fixed.
Double-clicking a transaction in the Account Enquiry now has the correct menu command names for Modify etc in the Edit menu.
Reminder Messages will now come up at midnight again if you leave MW on overnight.
