Crystal Reports

Hello,

  I am in a position that I will need to learn Crystal Reports for work.  To date, I have no experience with Crystal Reports nor do I have experience with programming or any other database management type software to speak of.  With this being said, what would be the easiest way for me to learn this technology in a short period of time?  I know that everyone has their own method to their madness and that is why I am putting this out there so anything you can provide me with would be greatly appreciated.

  I am being asked to add our company logo along with our company address and phone number to the top of every prescription form we currently print.  The new EMR software we just went to uses Crystal Reports but I have no clue where to start.  All I need to do is add our company logo and credentials to the top of a generic form that is used for all prescriptions.  Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you all in advance for your help and advice.....

Can you open the generic form?

If so
Click INSERT --> PICTURE
Navigate to the logo and click it
CLick OK

For the credentials
Add a text box to the report header and type them in

Do you have a copy of Crystal Reports?

Are these reports supplied with the EMR application?
IN that case you may have to get the developers to make the changes.

MLMCC,

  To be honest, I do not know if I have a copy of Crystal Reports or not as the IT Person I replaced left before I started.  I know I can download a trial version of it so I might go that route.  The developers told me that I would need to learn Crystal Reports or find someone that already knows it to get this done.  I will see what I can find and do what I can.

  Do you have any suggestions for me as to the best and quickest way to learn Crystal Reports?  How did you learn it?

Thanks,

I already knew MS Access reporting and basically just started using Crystal and figuring out how to use it.  I used websites like this one and the Crystal site for help.

I also used a book written by George Peck.

The free version may help but unless it is the same version the application uses it may cause problems.
