Crystal Reports Consultant San Diego

Crystal Reports Consultant San Diego: Crystal Reports has been a leading report design tool for a number of years. During that time there have been a variety of company names associated with the Crystal Reports product, as a result of company acquisitions and renaming. The original company that created the product was Crystal Services. Later, this became a Seagate Software product, then Crystal Decisions, then Business Objects, and now Crystal Reports is owned by SAP.

Crystal Reports enables a user to produce standard reports, cross-tabs, subreports, and graphs. Reports can export to a number of popular file formats such as: PDF, Excel Spreadsheet (.xls), Word Document (.doc), Rich Text Format (.rtf), and HTML. Crystal Reports gives the user the ability to interactively explore the report at run time. Application developers can use Crystal Reports to seamlessly integrate reports into custom applications.

As a result of the popularity enjoyed by Crystal Reports, as well as its ability to be integrated seamlessly into an application, it is no surprise to find that many different "off the shelf" software packages available today use integrated components of Crystal Reports to provide reporting functionality. Many such applications allow users to add additional reports to the application or to modify the application's existing reports. In the case where only "viewer" type components of Crystal Reports have been integrated into an application but not any "designer" type components, the user may be required to purchase a separate copy of Crystal Reports before they can modify or add to the application's collection of reports.
