Course description

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?

If you’re already confident in building simple reports with this software – either you’ve attended our Crystal Reports Modules 1 and 2 (Creating and Modifying Reports), or have equivalent knowledge – this advanced Crystal Reports training course will enhance your current skill level.

What will I get out of it?

By the end of the course you will be able to:

  • Include and modify graphs within reports
  • Summarise data using a cross tab report
  • Produce reports that incorporate sub-reports
  • Create running totals
  • Use date calculations

Paul did a very good job of understanding by level of ability, and focusing on what I needed to understand. Very good, explained himself well.
