Press release from November 8, 2012
FlowHeater GmbH has released FlowHeater Designer v. 2.5, a powerful Windows application that imports, dynamically converts, and exports data. Unlike complicated data conversion software, FlowHeater Designer offers a simple way to transfer data between all popular database formats. Your programming staff can train your end-users to do much of the design and conversion work. Using an intuitive graphical user interface to define the modifications needed to transform your data, you simply move it from place to place. FlowHeater Designer streamlines data conversion, and eliminates cost overruns and missed deadlines.

Filter duplicates records out
Filter duplicated entries out
The Filter Heater has been extended to provide a powerful new function. Repeated (duplicate) records or rows in the READ data source can now be filtered out with the Filter Heater. And in order to detect duplicate record/rows the data source does not need to be sorted!
Skipping empty lines
A further useful function has been added to the TextFile Adapter to ignore empty lines when reading (importing) text files (CSV, TXT, Flat File).
