Course Description

Since you've probably completed the first course, or are familiar with the basics of building and modifying reports, you're ready to move ahead to create complex reports and data sources using Crystal Reports' tools. In this course, you'll not only learn how to create more sophisticated reports like subreports and cross-tabs, you'll also learn how to increase the speed and efficiency of your reports by using SQL queries and dictionaries.

Course Objective: You will create complex reports and data sources 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 to make it easier for other people to create reports. They may or may not have programming and/or SQL experience.

Prerequisites: Crystal Reports 10.0: Level 1, and knowledge of programming and/or SQL would be helpful.
