Overview Recommended for: report designers, IT professionals, database administrators, power users, and application developers Crystal Reports 2008 is a powerful, dynamic, actionable reporting solution that helps you design, explore, visualize, and deliver reports via the web or embedded in enterprise applications. End users can consume reports with stunning visualizations, conduct on-report business modeling, and execute decisions instantly from the report itself—reducing their dependency on IT and developers. For more product information visit Crystal Reports Solutions. Features Interactive report viewing experience: End users can sort, filter, and reformat reports dynamically within the report viewers (supported in the .NET Webform and .NET Winform), all without forcing a database refresh—and answer more business questions with fewer report files. On-report scenario modeling: Access a powerful, dynamic decision support tool when you integrate SWF content files from Xcelsius (not included) into your Crystal Reports web applications. Operational reporting: Make your reports actionable by integrating FlexBuilder applications that provide business-user UI widgets to perform tasks such as database write-back and workflow integration. Advanced report publishing: Publish personalized reports such as invoices, statements, and other marketing materials to thousands of recipients in a single publishing session. Create multiple reports based on different data sources, loaded with data, personalized for each recipient, combined into a single file (such as PDF), then distributed to a dynamic list of recipients – all with a single action. Content can be optionally archived, printed, or emailed. Report design: Use the visual report designer for rapid data access and creation of highly formatted reports. New crosstab formulas reduce report design time by supporting custom calculations for rows and columns. Data access: Native, ODBC, OLE DB, and JDBC connectivity to relational, OLAP, web services, XML, legacy, and enterprise data sources, and the new salesforce.com driver. Application integration: Crystal Reports 2008 for Visual Studio (included) makes it easy to add reports to your application. You can drag and drop viewer components into your .NET Winform or Webform projects and use the SDKs to control report viewing, printing, exporting, plus programming report creation and modification. Deploy your application with the Crystal Reports 2008 runtime using either merge modules (MSMs) or a separate standalone MSI setup file.
