Virtually all applications need to present data to users, but any work beyond basic formatting — charts or conditional formatting, for example — can be very complex to program manually. Crystal Reports is one of the world's leading software packages for creating interactive reports, and it provides developers with an array of tools for creating rich reports that can be published on the Web or integrated within applications. Versions of Crystal Reports have been included with Visual Studio since 1993 but the latest version, Crystal Reports .NET, is now integrated more closely than ever before with Visual Studio .NET.
This book provides a detailed guide to the functionality provided with Crystal Reports .NET and shows you how to integrate reports into your .NET applications. The examples are in VB.NET, but Crystal Reports .NET itself is largely operated by a clear language-neutral user interface in the main, allowing reports to be created and manipulated in practically every .NET language supported by Visual Studio.

After having gotten pretty fed up with the increasingly sloppy work coming out of Wrox, I was pleasantly surprised by this title. It's currently the only thing out there written specifically for CR.NET. At 325 pages (appendices and index included), it's length is appropriate for its subject (which, more than anything, is what I mean by "a step in the right direction"). It is well organized, written and edited, and I found it quite helpful in meeting an important deadline. I highly recommend this title and hope it portends an overall improvement in future products from Wrox.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
