Crystal Reports is a powerful reporting tool that can seamlessly integrate into your application. In Crystal Reports Application Development, Craig Berntson shows you how to take advantage of the RDC so you can provide your users with printing, previewing, and report design capabilities. You’ll also learn how to determine which components to distribute and how to troubleshoot problems when they occur on the user’s computer. If you’re developing reporting tools with Crystal Reports, this is a must have book.

Crystal Reports is the premier reporting tool used today, able to be seamlessly integrated into your application. It can access almost any data source and can be used standalone or integrated into your application. While there are several integration methods, this book covers the one recommended by Crystal Decisions, the Report Design Control (RDC). After reading this book you’ll understand what components make up the RDC, how to use them, and what objects, collections, methods, and properties are available. You'll then be able to provide your users with printing, previewing, and report design capabilities. You’ll also learn how to determine which components to distribute, a step that has confused developers due to the number of files needed and their placement and registration on the target PC, and how to troubleshoot problems when they occur on the user’s computer. If you’re developing reporting tools with Crystal Reports, this is a must have book.
