Crystal Reports Formulas Explained

by

Crystal Reports is one of the most powerful software packages on the market and is used across all business sectors and industries.

The author writes: “Throughout my entire career, one of the most common phrases I hear is: ‘The software can’t do it.’

”As a result, Crystal Reports has a poor reputation within the IT community, and is one of the widest implemented, yet most underutilised software packages.

”ninety nine percent of the time, Crystal Reports can do ‘it’, or rather could do it if the report writer knew how to write formulas.

”Yet, no Crystal Reports books available cover formulas in any sort of depth….until now.”

Formulas are as powerful to Crystal Reports as macros are to MS Excel. Unfortunately, while numerous books exist focusing on learning macros for all skill levels, none exist for Crystal Reports formulas.

This book sets out to redress the balance and provide the first step by step guide for Crystal Reports formulas aimed at people with little or no programming knowledge.

Jason Dove has written numerous Business Intelligence articles, including a beginner's series accessible via the link below.
