Crystal Reports

To demonstrate how to create a Crystal report, the following fields were added to a new report in the Catalogue module in EMu:

Fields tab

When the report is run for the first time a message box displays with the following message:

Start new report

When the report Type is Crystal Report or Crystal ADO Report, clicking Yes will generate the required data output files and will open the Crystal Reports Designer application:

Crystal Reports Designer

If No is clicked, the Crystal Reports Designer will not open, but the output files will still be generated and copied to your computer.

There are two ways to create the report in Crystal Reports Designer:

  1. Using the Report Wizard
  2. Using a Blank Report
