Millet Software has just released version 6.5 of Visual Cut, one of my favorite tools for automating Crystal Reports. There are about 50 fixes and new features but the one that stood out was the ability to export to XLSX format. This format supports more than a million rows in a single tab and consumes much less disk space.
Another handy new feature, pointed out by Jared Faulkner of JF Electric , is the “After_Success_SQL” command that allows you to run a SQL statement after a completed report, or for each group in a burst. This gives you the ability to update the database with tracking information for each e-mailed or exported item. Doing this before required having the CUT Light UFL (also by Millet Software) but now this is built into Visual Cut.
If you want to learn more about Visual Cut or one of the other similar tools, then you should read my annual review of Desktop Schedulers. The review is done each March so it will be updated next month.
