Crystal Reports Level 1 (Basic)

Course Length: 12 hours (2 days)
Organizations use reporting tools to access data sources and generate customized reports. Crystal Reports 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.
