This course is designed for people who need output from a database. In some cases, database programs have limited reporting tools, and/or such tools may not be accessible. Organisations use reporting tools to access data sources and generate customised reports. SAP Crystal Reports enhances report building and report processing techniques with a wealth of features that add value to your presentation. In this course, you will create a basic report by connecting to a database and modifying its presentation.

Delegates may or may not have programming and/or SQL experience.
