Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Crystal Reports XI sports major improvements to data access and report design, long-awaited external image support, a new look-and-feel reminiscent of VS .NET, and plenty more new features. If you really want to drive business value from this tool, George Peck’s your guy, and his Crystal Reports XI: The Complete Reference is your book.

Peck covers everything from simple Report Wizard stuff to sophisticated cross-tab analysis, even reporting from OLAP cubes and Microsoft data types. There’s even an extensive formula language reference.

As valuable as this book is for users, it’s equally helpful to those managing or developing with Crystal technology in the enterprise. You’ll find a thorough introduction to the powerful new Crystal Reports Server, plus a full section on building custom web and Windows reporting applications. Whatever you need to do with Crystal XI, the answers are here. Bill Camarda, from the December 2005 Read Only
