Writer 4.2 Guide individual chapters now updated and republished

First a big thank you to Hazel for her hard work and "eagle eye" in
reviewing the previously published chapters and to Milos for providing
the "cleaned XML" copies for me to work with.

I have now incorporated Hazel's corrections into the files provided by
Milos and uploaded ODT copies to ODFAuthors and ODT + PDF copies to the
Documentation wiki.

Hopefully my little edits have not introduced any new XML anomalies.
I have asked Milos if he would be kind enough to run his script over
these revised chapters and if necessary I will replace the ones I have
done with the "cleaned" copies.

This just leaves the full book to be updated, which I will do over the
next couple of days.

Dave

You have answered your own question.

Obviously I am subscribed to this list, so please do NOT send copies
directly to me.

Re: Proposed Change To Writer Guide 4.2 Chapter 12

Hi :)
Would it be better to link directly to
http://www.mla.org/
rather than to one school's or university's attempt to reinterpret the
standard?  On the other hand they seem to only be available for purchase so
maybe a free reinterpretation is better.

Tom :)

Re: Proposed Change To Writer Guide 4.2 Chapter 12

Hi :)
The link worked for me.  I think the reason it breaks on some systems is
the full-stop after the link-address.  If you make it
http://www.mattawanschools.org
or
http://www.mattawanschools.org/
(without a full-stop at the end) then it works.

However it seems a bit weird to link to a school's website.  I prefer the
"owl" one and it seems to be more relevant to the paragraph.  Maybe the
school's home-page used to show something different.  The whole "Owl" site
looks like it might stay more relevant for longer.

Regards from
Tom :)

Proposed Change To Writer Guide 4.2 Chapter 12

I am in the process of reviewing Hazel's corrections to the published
chapters. On page 32 of chapter 12 Hazel found a dead link to an
external website.

The existing paragraph reads:
"Each type of source that you use when creating your document will have
its own unique works cited format. The Modern Language Association (MLA)
documentation format sets out the recommended order for these citations.
For example, see http://www.mattawanschools.org/."

I propose that we either:

1. Replace the link with https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/section/2/
or some similar source.

2. Delete the sentence:
"For example, see http://www.mattawanschools.org/."

Does anyone have any preference, or alternative suggestions for this? If
there an no objections, I will update the chapter with the first option.

Regards
Dave

I found that the following code did what I want.:
  AND DAYOFYEAR( "Contacts"."ContactFollowUpDate" ) BETWEEN DAYOFYEAR( 
"TODAY" ) - 15 AND DAYOFYEAR( "TODAY" ) + 15
This gives me all contacts due within the last 15 days and the next 15 days.

Obviously this will have a problem between 15th Dec to 15th January, but 
since I will not need to generate the report in this time period the 
code will work.
