Stonefield Query has the following features:

  • Powerful query and reporting tool designed with the end-user in mind. Design reports in minutes, not hours or days.

  • Simple wizard-based interface. After selecting a report from the list of available reports, you can select the sort order, enter filter conditions, and specify where the output goes (printer, spreadsheet, PDF file, screen preview, etc.).

  • Descriptive names for all fields and tables rather than cryptic names and symbols. Descriptive operators such as "equals" and "greater than" instead of "=" and ">."

  • Handles complex joins between tables automatically.

  • When you create a report, you can specify whether other users can change the filter conditions or the way it's sorted. You can even define reports that are only accessible to specific users.

  • Create great-looking charts and gauges, either by themselves or included in other reports.

  • Display dynamic dashboards of important information you need to run your business.

  • The Formula Editor allows you to define your own custom calculations to use in any report.

  • Templates give your reports a common appearance, such as following corporate style guidelines.

  • Easily create labels, including mailing labels, product labels, or barcode labels, without worrying about field positioning or label dimensions. All the common Avery label sizes are built-in.

  • Drill down from a report to see details.

  • Click the Values button to get a list of all possible values for any field.

  • Control font, color, alignment, heading, and column width for each field. Group on any field with a mouse click.

  • Automatically adjusts column widths to match the data in the column.

  • The Advanced Report Designer allows you to lay out the report exactly as you want, including company logos, lines, boxes, etc.

  • Output to Microsoft Excel, PDF, HTML, Microsoft Word, comma-delimited, or other types of files. You can also email reports.

  • Knows your data. You don't have to know how your data is stored or how tables are joined (you don't even have to know what a "join" is).

  • Schedule reports to run at any time you need.

  • Import reports so you can use report layouts designed by other users or consultants.

  • Export reports so you can share report layouts with other users.

  • Display "real" table and field names so it's easier to locate the table or field you want if you're familiar with these names.

  • Add new data sources, such as Microsoft Excel or Access, and connect them to your existing database with a few mouse clicks.

In addition to these features, Stonefield Query for AccountMate has the following special features:

  • Stonefield Query works with the latest version of AccountMate SQL and earlier versions.

  • Displays the expected value for many code fields rather than the actual values as AccountMate stores them. For example, the Invoice Type field in the Accounts Payable Invoices table is actually stored as a single character (blank, B, C or D) rather than the value you expect. Stonefield Query displays the expected values (Regular Invoice, Open Balance, Credit Card Payment, Debit Invoice) so you don't have to figure out what those character values mean.

  • Displays the company name rather than the database name in the Reports Explorer status bar, the Open Database dialog, and optionally the header of reports.

  • Allows you to consolidate records from multiple companies into one report. For example, you could show all outstanding invoices from all companies on the same report, including showing which company each one came from.

  • Only displays those tables and fields actually available in the version of AccountMate you use.

  • In any case where a table can be broken up in to a combination of 'Current' and 'History' items, the contents of each table will also be available from a combined version, allowing you to combine the results of these separate physical tables into the same report seamlessly.

  • Custom fields defined using the Custom Field Manager automatically appear in Stonefield Query with the same captions as they do in AccountMate.
