Crystal Reports Masterclass


Crystal Reports is an application that helps the users to generate reports from simple to complex types. Users can include options such as Charts and sub-reports within a report to analyse the data and can make it more presentable to their clients. Crystal Reports allows data to be grouped as well so that the users can also be presented with a summarized view of their data. This data can come from various sources such as high-end databases like Oracle, SQL Server, DB2, Ingres, and Salesforce. It can also take data as input from other sources such as Microsoft Excel Spreadsheets, XMl Files, Text Files, etc. Earlier on the Crystal Reports Application formed an integral part of Microsoft Visual Studio as a reporting tool but this has been discontinued as Microsoft has replaced the Crystal Reports application with its own in the recent versions of Visual Studio.
