Summary
Crystal Reports 2008 is the newest addition to the Crystal Reports family. This course guides students through this powerful application to answer business questions quickly and easily. The course uses the time-tested scenario approach to involve the student in a hunt for the best answers to difficult questions. Crystal Reports 2008.0, which is also known as Version 12, is the first full released since SAP purchased the software in 2007. The course places the student in the role of the administrative assistant to Mr. Bossy the bad-tempered CEO of BigDeal, Inc. Starting with the simplest reports, the student will be shown how to respond to the increasingly complex requests by Mr. Bossy, Penny Pincher (the CFO) and Willy Loman (the Sales Manager). At the end of the two-day course, the student will be able to produce reports with subtotals, shading, formulas, charts and complex calculations.
