The following quotes are excerpts from numerous emails I received when the book
was in its online format and I was still searching for a publisher. Order a
copy today to make learning CR.NET easy.
"I've purchased several books on Crystal Reports and none of them contained a
tenth of the information presented in this book."
"Before I found your website, I have wasted many hours trying to figure out how
to pass parameters to a report using a report found at a file path. I
appreciated your straightforward explanations ... they are fabulous."
"Using Crystal Reports has been a challenge for me – starting with the long
wait times to talk to support at Crystal Decisions and their extremely poor
documentation on the subject. They should read your book!"
"By the way this is a great book. I've gone from 0 - 60 mph in a single day."
"I had been searching for the simple answer as to how to bind a report to a
DataSet, and got NOTHING. This site was clear, concise and brilliant!"
"Brian... Wonderful! You have saved my butt just two days out from a role-out
of my first .NET system. Your details on how to change text labels on a report
through code did the job. You'll get my support!"
"Very nice, walked me through all the features and procedures, very helpful for
"First of all "thanks for an excellent book". It really fills a niche in the
market - I can find nothing like it anywhere on the 'NET at present and I can't
understand why the publishers aren't interested. Picking your way through the
rather esoteric programming model must have been tricky to say the least!"
"This is a great book. WHat I like about this book is it is very well-arranged,
descriptive and has lovely examples to make understanding easy."
"First of all, I want to say thank you for the book, it's really helped me in
many places. I never worked with Crystal Report before and I finish and do some
reports that were started by someone else who is not here anymore and no one in
the company was able to show me how it works. I found the book helped me for
the ones I wasn't able to solve and because there is not many place where we
can get help about this program, your book is even better."
"I just wanted to thank you for the best web site on Crystal Reports !! It's
great. I've been a Crystal Reports Developer (I also use Crystal
Enterprise...), for the past couple of years, and I've always wanted to combine
Crystal with a .Net program. I searched high and low, and while lots of people
have posted sample code, no one has give as complete an example as you."
"The book is great. It is the first time that i've used crystal and found the
formula editor a nightmare, thanks to your book I now know what is going on."
