Civility in critiquing the ideas of others is no vice. Rudeness in defending your own ideas is no virtue.

I am getting increasingly excited by our new @Midas Formulas.  I originally thought of it as just Midas for formula language, and it is that, but it is more as well.  I hope some of the beta testers can take it ways I haven't thought of as well.

Maybe you are satisfied with your rich text table just looking good, like this wonderful plate from the Residence of the Bavarian Kings in Munich.  Maybe looking at it is enough for you.



But, if you want to do more than look, and see how a rich text table can become true data, not just a pretty blob, using simple formula language calls such as: 

delegates := @Sum(@DbColumn("Midas":"NoCache"; ""; @DocumentUniqueID; "Body"; 4; "SkipTitle=2 Format=Number"));

then sign up for our beta by filling out the beta request form and we'll send along a beta license.  Come on, you know you want to give it a try!
