In cases where the report (or subreports) connect to more than 1 data source, Visual CUT 11
now supports a new ini [Options] entry of:
By default, that option is set to True, meaning that after successful connection to one data
source, Visual CUT would attempt to connect to a 2
data source within the same report
using the user id & password established for the 1
data source. One customer encountered a
problem when the 2
data source is an ODBC connection to Progress. For such scenarios,
users can now set this option to False.
Depending on screen size, the selective parameter refresh grids now show more rows
(reducing the need to scroll when a report has many parameters).
Added Email_Message_Save command line argument to save the email message body to an
HTML or Text file. This allows you to take advantage of the email message HTML editor to
generate web pages with dynamic content from a Crystal report without using the HTML
Added a TXT_DeGUID_png command line argument to remove GUIDs (unique identifiers)
from png file references and file names in HTML exports. This can make the process of
generating web dashboards faster, cleaner, and simpler. For detail, see "Removing GUIDs
from png Files Referenced in HTML Exports."
command line argument now has a ‘DeleteLinkedFile’ option designed
for Web Dashboard generation cases where properly named linked image files already exist
(and don’t need to be changed). When using this option, after cleaning the HTML references
to linked image files, the newly generated image files are simply deleted (instead of renamed).

Replacing Content in Text/HTML Files
If the Email_To option contains the text "VC_Skip_Email", the actual emailing of the
message is skipped. This allows you to use a formula that returns an email address or
"VC_Skip_Email" to control whether an email will be sent out. It also allows you to use the
new Email_Massage_Save command line argument without emailing anything.
When queuing emails as .eml files to an outgoing folder, if the Email_From option contains
the text "[VC_Blank_Address]" the email from option is set as blank. This supports rare use
scenarios where the user wishes to open the .eml files in Outlook and populate the From
address (and the certificate) based on the user’s Outlook settings.
When queuing emails, accented characters in the .eml file names are now replaced with
unaccented characters. This protects against emailing failures.
XLS_AutoFit now provides arguments for specifying a maximum column width and
whether or not the content of maxed-out columns should wrap. For detail, see "Column
Auto Fit in Excel Exports"
