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.


You will create complex reports using Crystal Reports’ tools.
