your output into effective, attractive, laser printable documents incorporating
logos, barcodes and specific customer data - without re—programming the BAAN
application. Re—pagination, International date, number and language formatting

Following Sponsors have also extended their sponsorship:

+ Migration Labs (
+ Xpert Technical Services (


2) Upcoming site changes

I am contemplating replacing the rather ailing Wiki by a full blown CMS solution
in the near future. As things stand now, the likely candidate will be vbDrupal.
vbDrupal will do away with the need of having the register for both Forum and
Wiki separately and will offer some other nice features like blogs, links
directory etc. I am aiming to have the migration ready by the end of Q1, 2008.
Updates and more news on this will be posted on the forum.


3) Did you know?

That the Baanboard forum now has a Google-integrated search engine besides its
own internal search feature? The Google search results will be displayed within
the forum layout rather than a separate Google page.

Read more about this new feature in this forum thread:


4) About and this newsletter is a non-profit community driven website aiming to provide help
and information for and by Baan users and developers.

This newsletter is sent to all members. There is no fixed
interval by which this newsletter and future editions will be published.

Disclaimer: Baanboard takes no responsibility for the content nor correctness
of the messages and/or documents sent through its bulletin board, email systems

Just noticed that the email newsletter mentioned "2006" instead of "2007". Doh.. Sometimes proof-reading and spell-checking still does not catch all errors
