About this Version 

BrioQuery 6 provides enhanced functionality. Queries used in BrioQuery 5 will run in BrioQuery 6 but cannot be saved back to version 5. Version 5 detail reports will work as created in version 5. If you need to modify these reports, open the query in version 6, click on the report, and convert it to report format via the Detail menu bar.
