    Dear myDBR,

    Could you please tell what was done in "Excel export improvements"? Does it involve faster and less memory eating export?

    Excel improvements contain multiple smaller things:

    • Cleaner formatting
    • Improvements how HTML encoded content is handled
    • UTF-8 special character handling
    • Time formatting
    • HTML- link handling

    While the upderlying libary has been updated, memory and speed requirements stay the same. If you export larger datasets, you are better off using unformatted CSV export.

    Support for non-editable visible parameters (s-parameter)

    I've looked in the documentation but I haven't been able to find this. Perhaps I missed it. But how do I use this feature?

    you can use following format:


    select '', 'sp_DBR_myreport', 'in_visible*=col';
    select col
    from mutable;

    Could you talk more about the new feature of Accordion multiopen. What it means and how to use it? I checked the manual but can not find anything related this feature.

    by default, accordion works in a way that there is always one and only one section open.

    If you add option 'multiopen:true' to the first accordion section, you can have multiple (or none) sections open at the same time. You can also start the accordion all sections closed with option 'active:false'.

    An example:

    select 'dbr.accordion', 'First section','active:false,multiopen:true';
    select 'dbr.text', "Content of first section", 'comment';
    select 'dbr.accordion', 'Second section';
    select 'dbr.text', "Content of second section", 'comment';
    select 'dbr.accordion.close';
