Crystal Report Using Wizard


Crystal Report Wizard has three types of expert:

Standard Report: The Standard Report Expert is the most generic of the experts. The Standard Report Expert guides you through the process of choosing a data source and linking database tables. It also helps you add fields and specify the grouping, summarization (totals), and sorting criteria you want to use. Finally, the Standard Report Expert leads you through chart creation and record selection.

Cross-Tab Report: They generate summary data in a grid where the rows and columns represent groups of data. This provides the user with a report format that is easy to read and uses a small footprint on the page.

Mailing Label Report: The Mailing Labels Report Creation Wizard lets you create a report that is formatted to print on a mailing label of any size. You can use the Label screen to select a commercial label type, or you can define your own layout of rows and columns for any multi-column style report.
