Created by Harry Lewis, Modified on Tue, 16 Jul at 9:35 AM by Gabriel Michaud

This article lists out all Velixo Classic releases of our Insider Channel prior to the release of Velixo version 7.


Version 6.2.206 

(released 2022-04-12)


✨ Improved

  • During the writeback process, if there are no cells containing a writeback formula where Velixo can display a detailed error (e.g. during GL writeback which is not formula-based), an pop-up error box will be displayed instead. 


  • The VBA method for writing back the specified worksheet was always writing back the active worksheet and ignored the specified parameter. 

  • In GL writeback, several parameters, such as branch and currency, were redundantly being required by Velixo even when they could be filled in by default in Acumatica. 

  • It was only possible to instantiate Velixo's VBA object as a variant type, due to updated VBA method signatures. 


Version 6.2.188

(released 2022-03-22)


  • Velixo Reports includes a streamlined writeback experience - with just a single "smart" writeback button. The button will detect all different types of writeback used on the current worksheet, and act accordingly. In conjunction with other writeback improvements, this experience allows you to build quite interesting and complex scenarios: for example, you can create a customer, then a sales order for that new customer, and finally, update the project budget – all in just one click! 1813

  • There is now a Velixo option to create drill-down worksheets in a separate workbook. 1847

  • A brand-new "Support" button that allows you to access Velixo's body of knowledge in a task pane right beside your workbook. You can also chat with our support team in case none of the articles answer your question (An article search is required before a chat button becomes available at the bottom of the search results). 1964

  • A better sense of progress: during a long refresh, in the status bar, Velixo will additionally display the total record count to be loaded, in addition to the number of already loaded records. This feature will only work on supporting ERP versions (such as Acumatica 2022 R1). 1970

  • A VELIXOVERSION function is available to quickly retrieve the current add-in version (useful in communication with the support team). 1991

✨ Improved

  • WRITEBACK now supports an additional argument to output the key fields of any created entities back onto the workbook. 2000

  • Running drill-down has been prohibited while Refresh is running. 1998

  • WRITEBACK will skip fully empty Excel rows during import. 1993

  • Better performance of GL and Project writeback. 1968

  • When closing the workbook, Velixo will offer to delete the created drill-down worksheets. 1951

  • The Refresh ribbon button will now change to a Cancel button whenever a refresh is in progress. 1891

  • Multiple lines can now be imported using a single WRITEBACK formula. 1887

  • Upgradeable inquiries will no longer be validated during the connection process, only the missing ones. To validate both the missing and upgradeable inquiries, the user will need to select "More" -> "Validate Inquiries" in the connection manager. The message about the upgradeable / missing inquiries was made clearer and less confusing. 1795

  • If a particular Velixo feature is unavailable under the current license, the product will direct the user towards a contact with Velixo. 1836 1840

  • Improved error messaging for the "403 Forbidden" error during refresh and inquiry configuration, indicating that it is not a problem with Velixo, but with the ERP access rights configuration. 1773 1819 1895

  • When specifying the connection URL, Velixo will now follow HTTP redirects and replace the connection URL with the final redirect location. 1799

  • Velixo Reports will not automatically propose to upgrade the customization project every time a new customization package is available for download. Instead, there is now a "minimum required customization version" information defined in every Velixo version itself; therefore, Velixo will offer to update the customization package if (and only if) it is a required update for an updated Velixo version. We will also strive to avoid or minimize such required updates and prompts. 1801

  • Tenants with a trailing dot in the name can now be accessed from Velixo. 1817

  • VBA refresh call-backs are now supported even when a distribution list was invoked via Velixo's CLI tool. 1837

  • "Hide zero rows" now works on spilled array results, too. 1902

  • Filling out both Debit and Credit fields in GL writeback is not required anymore, it is enough to fill either of those. 1907

  • Supported best match / possible value hints in the WRITEBACK function. 1956 1958

  • Velixo ribbon labels have been compacted to ensure that it is not collapsed on a 15" laptop. 2049

  • Hidden sheets will be ignored when distributing the report in the PDF format. 2081

  • Got rid of the screen flicker when creating a new generic writeback worksheet. 2086

  • Formula-based budget writeback now supports a single Excel cell range with the by-period budgeted amounts. 2093

  • GILOOKUP(F) became "dynamic aware" - it will output an array whenever one or more of its arguments is also an array. 2096

  • Important access rights related exceptions will be duplicated as a pop-up in addition to being displayed in the cell. 2099

  • Drill-down now supports legacy Ctrl+Shift-Enter (CSE) arrays. 2131


  • Drill-down result worksheet could display incorrect source cell addresses under certain conditions. 2127

  • It was impossible to create a generic writeback worksheet when scenario retrieval failed and the user was prompted to enter the screen ID manually. 2101

  • On certain files, the drill-down process did not set the "To" date when opening transactions in Acumatica.

  • Generic writeback: an IndexOutOfRange exception happened when importing multiple records with varying number of columns. 2041

  • The user could see a confusing error message if they passed an unsupported value into the IncludeUnposted argument in balance functions. 2014

  • Fixed a race condition affecting resource-constrained computers and preventing Refresh in some scenarios. 1952

  • When "load the full inquiry dataset and apply filters locally" option was enabled, GI filtering on date/time values incorrectly applied the local time zone instead of UTC. 1935

  • Retrieving unposted GL balances, or posted GL balances by date could bypass the restriction groups set up in the ERP system. 1945

  • Focus could shift from Excel to Windows Explorer upon performing writeback.

  • Getting a GL drill-down summary through VBA resulted in an error. 1913

  • A COM exception sometimes occurred on Refresh on complex WRITEBACK formulas. 1873

  • "Thread is not main" exception occurred sometimes when createing a writeback worksheet. 1884

  • When creating a generic writeback worksheet, after the user changed the connection in the drop-down, a scenario retrieval error could be shown for the previous connection. 1830

  • When distributing specific sheets only, the source workbook theme was not applied to the destination workbook. 1815

  • Fixed incomplete user-triggered cancellation during the inquiry configuration process. 1811

  • Velixo could complain that the user had not specified a project task code during GL writeback whenever non-project code "X" was specified. 1797

  • The lines in multi-line error messages will not be glued together in Excel cells anymore. 2016

  • Sometimes Velixo erroneously complained about an outdated customization project version when it was not even installed. 1762

  • When entering Velixo formulas in-cell, the best match and other possible values were not displaying. 1760

  • The single sign-on architecture was revamped to minimise the "invalid grant" errors frequently experienced by some of our users. 2020

  • The generic writeback formula did not return an error message when the field names argument was omitted. 1788

  • Velixo will now prevent unnecessary new cross-file links after running a Distribution List with tab selection. (#1573)

  • Added important access rights warnings before and after Velixo adds/upgrades Generic Inquiries in Acumatica. (#1598)

  • For functions expecting a TRUE/FALSE value, Velixo now also supports "Yes" and "No". (#1693)

Version 6.0.411

(released 2021-09-17)



  • Resolved a calculation issue affecting users running reports with multiple connections to instances or tenants sharing the same chart of accounts. You can skip this update if your reports only contain a single connection.


Version 6.0.410

(released 2021-08-16)



  • New formula-based GL Budget Writeback worksheets, which allow one to reorganize writeback layouts and write back to multiple ledgers, branches, and/or years simultaneously.

  • An option was added to determine how blank rows should be handled after Hide Zero Rows. The choice is among three possible strategies: to keep all blank rows; to hide all blank rows; and to hide consecutive blank rows, keeping at most one.

  • New parameters added to the ACCOUNTSANDSUBACCOUNTSWITHHISTORY() function and the ACCOUNTSWITHHISTORY() function:

  • New command-line helper to facilitate scheduled distribution of reports through the Windows Task Scheduler.

✨ Improved

  • Drill-down view will always keep separate the history records from different source cells.

  • Asset / Liability balance calculations for budget ledgers will refrain from using last year's balances in case no corresponding budget record exists in the specified financial year. This is consistent with Acumatica behavior: since amounts are budgeted individually for each financial year, there is no ending balance transfer across financial years even for Asset/Liability accounts.

  • Improved GI() error messages in case the user removes a column from a generic inquiry.

  • VBA: one can now enable synchronous calculations upon updating cell values. This ensures that Velixo functions have finished calculating before executing any dependent logic.

  • The validation of sheet names in distribution lists is no longer case-sensitive.


  • Report distribution blueprints are now created in the specified order (rather than reverse order).

  • On a rare occasion, Excel could crash during balance calculations due to a concurrency issue.

  • Some array returning functions, such as EXPANDACCOUNTRANGE, did not expand properly on non-dynamic-aware versions of Excel (pre-Office 365).

  • It is now possible to use GI functions when working offline.

  • During Refresh, pivot tables were being refreshed before calculations finished, resulting in incorrect pivot data.

  • Under some circumstances, Excel could stop while executing Velixo scripts with DisplayAlerts = false.

  • It is now possible to copy workbook without formulas on protected worksheets.

  • Reversed Account Balance Sign option does no affect Asset and Expense account signs in drill-down.

  • Fixed an issue which could result in an error when creating a distribution list on the French version of Velixo.

(released 2021-03-25)


✨ Improved

  • Improved the performance of Hide Zero Rows/Hide Zero Columns on very large sheets.

  • Added an alternative algorithm for the Excel (remove all formulas) option of report distribution that can be enabled through Workbook options.

  • Automatic refresh of Pivot Tables can now be configured from a Distribution List.
