McKay Dunlap's Crystal Reports 101 was clearly presented, easy to follow, and practical. Looking forward to taking Crystal Reports 102.

A little different from what I was expecting... i'll have to see if my company has crystal reports... reason for taking this was to see if this was done out of standard SAP (reporting).
