Crystal Reports V11 Advanced

Now that you have completed the first course, or are familiar with the basics of building and modifying reports, you're ready to move ahead to create complex reports and data sources using Crystal Reports' tools. In this course, you'll not only learn how to create more sophisticated reports including subreports and cross-tabs, but you'll also learn how to increase the speed and efficiency of your reports by using SQL queries.

Please note: Crystal Reports has had multiple software versions released over the years. Please check that the version you are using matches to the course you will be attending: v10 and v11 were both released in 2003, thereafter versions 2008, 2011 and 2013 were released in the same year as their name.
