Advanced OLAP Reporting

Up to this point, the OLAP Expert and OLAP Report Creation Wizard have demonstrated the capability of Crystal Reports to rapidly create OLAP based reports. More than these capabilities, Crystal Decisions has provided advanced analytic capabilities against OLAP data sources through some advanced OLAP-oriented features in Crystal Reports and through a sister product called Crystal Analysis. The last four sections of this hour introduce some of these advanced features.

Interacting with the OLAP Grid

Crystal Reports provides some powerful interactive OLAP features from directly within the Crystal Reports Preview and Design tabs. Figure 20.16 displays the right-click menu that appears when right-clicking on the year 1998 member in this hour's sample report.
