How to Actuate Reporting Software

We have purchase ERP System and the reporting runs on Actuate Reporting.  I am not able to find any site or books for us to learn how to use Actuate and create reports.  Need help if any one can recommend sites and books and easy way of learing.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I have been using actuat for a little while too.

I have found the best support comes from the manulas provided with the software and the help desk contact.

I have searched for some books but have had little luck.
