Course Number: 095027
Course Length: 1 day
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.
In this course, you will connect to a database to extract data and present it as a report.
Identify the elements of the Crystal Reports interface.
Create and modify a basic report.
Use formulas to calculate and filter data.
Build a parameterized report.
Group report data.
Enhance a report.
Create a report using data from an Excel workbook.
This course is designed for people who need output from a database. In some cases, database programs have limited reporting tools, or tools that are not accessible. Learners may or may not have programming or SQL experience.

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.
