Course Description

Until now, you have used Crystal Reports to build and modify reports. You want to use the advanced functionality of Crystal Reports to generate reports in the format you desire. In this course, you will create complex reports and data sources using Crystal Reports' tools. You will not only create more sophisticated reports including subreports and cross-tabs, but you will also increase the speed and efficiency of your reports by using SQL queries.

Course Objective: You will create complex reports using Crystal Reports' tools.

Target Student: This course is designed for people who know how to create basic list and group reports and need to create reports that include subreports, cross-tabs, advanced formulas, and charts based on more than one data series. They may also need to build tools that make it easier for other people to create reports. They may or may not have programming and/or SQL experience.

Prerequisites: Crystal Reports® 2008: Level 1. A knowledge of programming and/or SQL would also be helpful.

Delivery Method: Instructor led, group-paced, classroom-delivery learning model with structured hands-on activities.
