What is the course about?

Once you’ve mastered the basics of Crystal Reports, it is a powerful tool. But there are a number of advanced features and techniques that can make this software even more effective.

We show you some of the more powerful functions this software is capable of – from charts and cross tab reports, to working with data calculations – extending your knowledge beyond simple list-style reports.

Is it right for me?
