HelpDesk Express (HDE) is our DataFlex-based online support application for submitting bug reports, product suggestions and questions. HDE allows Data Access and customers to easily manage support communications and to monitor the status of submitted tickets.
HDE tickets should always be entered in English. The Data Access Worldwide support team frequently reviews tickets, assigns them for resolution and communicates with the submitter until closure. You will need a Data Access ID and an HDE user to use HelpDesk Express. If you do not have one already, simply create one when navigating to HDE.

All bug reports should be submitted to Data Access using HelpDesk Express (HDE) - see information above. When bugs in Current Products are reported, Data Access will attempt to confirm the bug in the latest release of the product.
Ticket status information for verified bugs assists developers using a current product revision and identifies how the bug is addressed in the current release (i.e., it was specifically fixed or simply doesnt happen due to other product changes). Reported bugs that do not exist in a Current Product are unlikely to be verified, fixed or receive a workaround in the revision in which it was reported.
