Query CMS Database

I am using Crystal Reports XI. I have a situation where all of our reports that are scheduled to go out via email also have the notification for errors set to be sent to two default users. The business has finally set up an email alias for all of these failure notifications to go to, but now we need to change this in all of the reports (some 150+). Is there any way to run queries against the CMS database and update the data within it in one swoop? Seems everything is encrypted and in binary.

Please let me know if further information / clarification is required, and thanks in advance.

Hi Sean,

The system information are in binary. Even with the SDK, if you don't really know where to update such information, you might potentially be spending a large amount of programming resources on this. If that's the case, the ROI might not be worthwhile.

You might want to consider either reconfiguring the original destination email address into an alias address, or just setting up rule in the email server to forward those emails to the new alias address instead.

Hope this helps.
