With the Jet 4.0 you do need to convert the Jet 3.5 .eap to Jet 4.0. For more details on this see the notes on:
& Download the Jet 4.0 base from:

For this type of scenario where it is Element properties not a Package property that is setting what is to be excluded, you are best using the: Document Options dialog | Document Options Tab | Filter > Except Where Query Excludes Package.

With the simulation it was not intended to call external EA Scripts. A better solution for this is to call an Operation in the parent Class and place any code in Operations Behavior tab - F9 | Operations | Behavior.

General Board / Re: EA Slow Performance on AWS RDS

If you are using an MySQL ODBC connection on EA to the MySQL repository then this is not connecting via the Cloud service. If it is via the the Cloud then you will be doing a Cloud connection.
We do suggest you push for the Cloud to be used.
There is a webinar on connecting AWS with the Cloud service on:
If you send though a request to the support email we can send you a document covering this in more detail.
I also suggest you find out the IP address of the AWS RDS and try doing a ping/tracert to check the general response rate. Note AWS does not have set ICPM on - so the administrator needs to set this on.

General Board / Re: Links to Q&A's / Source Documentation

I am not sure what you mean with point one - are your referring to generating a Document?
With point 2 You can set up Hyperlinks to Elements from within the document - Highlight a word - Context menu | Create | Link to Existing Element. But in reverse as there is no direct reference inside the Document that an Element can refer to - so this is not supported.
