Course Outline

This Crystal Reports training class is designed to enhance your basic report writing skills and move you into creating more complex reports. Time will be spent walking you through the tips and tricks of advanced report writing along with a good amount of hands on practice. In addition, you will cover professional design, techniques, sub-reporting and advanced formulas.

Our instructor-led online classes are conducted in the 2011 version of the software. Your instructor will point out the minor differences between versions where they exist. For our custom instructor-led online and onsite classes, we use the version of the software you use in your office.

Please note that XI is the older version of Crystal Reports and should not be confused with 2011.
