In today’s information intensive environment, every business has a database of some sort. After all, business today is all about information and databases give you a handle on the massive amounts of information you must deal with. Therefore, your business has a database and from that database, you need reports. The problem is, most reporting capabilities that come with database programs are limited. They only report on data from that program. Many users need to report on data from multiple sources, even SQL (Structured Query Language) databases such as Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, Informix or Sybase. 

Crystal Reports is one of the most powerful reporting programs available with the ability to pull data from all types of data sources. You can use Crystal Reports to generate reports from any of the standard PC database programs, Access, Paradox, or FoxPro, as well as from a mainframe or server database. Crystal also has a powerful web-reporting server that allows you to distribute your reports over the web. 

Crystal Reports is bundled with more than 160 other programs including Visual Basic, some medical applications, many accounting packages and several ERP solutions. It makes report generation easy without requiring you to be a programmer or a database expert. If you know how to work in a Windows environment and are familiar with the data you want to use, you can create a Crystal Report that looks professional and makes sense


This course is designed for people who need output from a database. In some cases, database programs have limited reporting tools, or tools that are not accessible. Learners may or may not have programming or SQL experience.
