Email Issue: No mail is sent using the Gallery Express BULK email feature.

Resolution: Check with your ISP(Internet/Email service provider) to see if there are a maximum number of bcc strings allowed in an email. Open the 'Company Information' form and edit your email settings so that the maximum number of allowed recipients is less than that number (50 or less is recommended).

Email Issue: Not all emails are sent using the Gallery Express BULK email feature.

Resolution: There may be invalid characters in some of your client email settings. Check the client email addresses to make sure they do not contain invalid characters. Invalid characters include:
     ! # $ % ^ ( ) | { } < > [ ] ? and empty spaces

Client emails can be quickly checked by running the 'Customers by Email' report (Administration->Reports->Customer List->Customers by Email). The list of emails successfully sent are also available in the 'EmailRec' directory where Gallery Express is installed (usually 'c:\Program Files\Gallery Express 5').


Installation Issues - When starting Gallery Express after installation, the message "The database you have selected is not a valid Gallery Express database.

Version 4.1.1

Saving Art Inventory - When receiving an art inventory item from an artist where the 'Default Consign Rate' has been set, the consign rate on the 'Receive Inventory' form may revert to the default amount as the record is being saved.  
Solution: Fixed in future releases. If you have edited a consign rate for an item when receiving it and the amount is saved incorrectly, open the 'Edit Inventory' form to enter the correct consign rate.

Report Issues - Certain reports such as the art catalog report and artist mailing labels may cause the program to exit unexpectedly. Artist names with single quotes have been saved in earlier versions of the program. This is currently an issue that has been address by disallowing single quotes in Artist names, however any artists that were added previous to this version may be an issue. 
Solution: Edit any Artist names with single quotes.

International Issues - Version 4.1.1 and earlier issues are not fully compliant for all international settings. For certain regional settings, Error #3061 may occur when attempting to save data that has currency amounts. This will only occur where local currency delimiters are a comma (,) for the decimal marker. To ensure correct behavior, regional settings for your computer must be set to 'English - United States'. To check your regional settings - Open Windows Control Panel and click on the 'Regional Settings' icon.
