Overview
Crystal Reports Part 1:
Organizations use reporting tools to access data sources and generate customized reports. SAP® Crystal Reports® 2020 enhances report building and report processing techniques with a variety of features that add value to a presentation. In this course, you will create a basic report by connecting to a database and modifying the report's presentation.
Information is critical to making sound business decisions. Data presented without any formatting or structure holds little or no meaning for interpretation. Crystal Reports 2020 helps you build advanced reports with ease, presenting complex information in an understandable way.

Crystal Reports Part 2:
Until now, you have used SAP® Crystal Reports® to build and modify reports. You want to use the advanced functionality of Crystal Reports to generate reports in the format you desire. In this course, you will create complex reports and data sources using the tools in Crystal Reports 2020. You will not only create more sophisticated reports, including subreports and cross-tabs, but you will also increase the speed and efficiency of your reports by using SQL queries.
Even though you are familiar with Crystal Reports, you may take some time to study its various tools that enable you to generate reports with the desired data using advanced methods such as SQL querying. This way, you won't be slowed down by large databases or databases with which you are unfamiliar. By creating subreports, cross-tabs, and running totals, you will turn raw data into meaningful, customized reports that will help your business run more smoothly. If you work with large databases, you may find yourself faced with performance issues. In this course, you will also learn to use tools that can increase the speed with which data is retrieved.

Prerequisites
Before taking this course, learners should be familiar with basic computer functions, such as creating and navigating folders, opening programs, manipulating windows, copying and pasting objects, formatting text, and saving files in Microsoft® Windows®. In addition, learners should have taken the Microsoft® Office Access® 2019: Part 1, or the Microsoft® Access® for Office 365™: Part 1 course, or have equivalent experience with basic database concepts.
