Understanding How Templates Work

A lot of report formatting tasks were accomplished in the two minutes it took to apply the template in the previous exercise, including

  • Adding the Powered by Crystal logo to the report (along with its ToolTip and hyperlink) from the Crystal Repository

  • Adding an image that says Confidential as an underlay to each page of the report

  • Modifying the fonts and positions of all the database fields

  • Showing the Record Selection Formula on the report

  • Adding dashed lines between all items in the Details Section

  • Adding a rounded box around the Record Selection Formula

  • Using a rounded box to show where groups start and end

  • Moving the Field Headings for each data field into the Group Header and formatting them with double lines
