Why is Crystal Reports for Sage helpful for your business?
Step 1: Select the Report
To access Crystal Reports, select the appropriate command from the Crystal menu on the Modules menu bar in the Business Center. Select New Report to create a report or Open Report to access an existing report.
If you are creating a new report, you can use a template from one of three different tabs to create your report. Use a template on the Catalog tab to create a report from scratch, the Gallery tab to modify a DacEasy report or the User-Defined tab to modify a user-created report. The templates on the Catalog tab aid the design process by combining tables into logical groupings; however, you can select the Blank template to have access to any table.
Step 2: Modify or Create the Report
After selecting the report in DacEasy, the report appears in Crystal Reports. If you opened an existing report, you can modify the report. If you are creating a new report, design the report. Crystal allows you to format the fields, add subtotals and grand totals, create formulas, insert subreports, insert cross-tab objects, insert fields, add charts, add maps, add OLE objects, modify the sort order, limit records, utilize SQL and much more!
Step 3: View the Report
After the report is complete, you can save the report and then view the data. You have the options to print, fax and export the report. The ability to export to over twenty different format types adds to the power of Crystal Reports. Some of these format types include: Adobe Acrobat (PDF), Comma-separated values, Microsoft Excel, HTML 3.2 and 4.0, Lotus 1-2-3, XML, Microsoft Word, Rich Text Format and ODBC.
Because the security of your data is so important, you are prompted for your User Name and Password prior to previewing a report that includes your data. You must supply your Business Center user name and password. This user must have access rights to Crystal Reports for the current DacEasy module to view the data.
