The installer(msi) file now defaults to a per-machine installation, if installed by an
Administrator. This facilitates the deployment of Visual CUT when an Administrator
installs the software for use by other users. In the past, such cases would require installation
from a command line with an ALLUSERS=1 argument.
Visual CUT 9 now uses a new set of Crystal 9 runtime components that, among other minor
fixes, can provide much faster execution of Crystal 8.5 reports in certain cases (one user
reported a decrease from 3-5 minutes to 10 seconds).
Added a command line argument (PDF_Print_SPLIT) that allows you to split the printout of
a PDF file to multiple printer trays. For example, you may want to print the first page from
a tray containing your company's letterhead, and the rest from a regular paper tray.
Version 4.6005: Released 2/17/2005
New Grid for Selecting Reports with enhancements such as:
- more columns (path, report, title/description, subject, type, date/time last used )
- sort on any column by clicking the column header
- group on any column by dragging the column header to a Grouping area
- select larger or smaller font size (right-
click column headers…)
- hide/show columns (right-
click column headers…)
- Select multiple reports and load them into the grid in one step
When running reports that use ODBC data sources, you can select which ODBC data source
should be used. This is explained in detail in the section: Selecting an Alternative ODBC
Data Source .
A new command line argument (ODBC_DSN) allows external control of which ODBC
data source is used. This is explained in detail in the section: Selecting an Alternative
ODBC Data Source .
The main window remembers its size from session to session.
Added a browse button to allow easy selection of file attachments.
The dialog allows selection of multiple files and adds the choices (separated by semi-colon) to
any choices already specified. Note: if file attachments are dynamically named (using
fields/formulas from the report), you must edit the resulting text because the file browse
dialog is restricted to existing files.
Added a browse button to allow easy selection of a text (*.txt) file for use as an email
distribution list. After the file is selected, Visual CUT automatically adds the required
"FILE:" prefix inside the "Email To" option.
Added Number constants for specifying Year or Month relative to the current year or month.
This is described in the section "Number Constants." Thanks to Paul MacKenzie (Silberline)
for sponsoring this development.
