Using the OLAP Report Creation Wizard and OLAP Expert

Crystal Reports provides two easy ways to create reports against OLAP data sources. As introduced in Chapter 1, “Creating and Designing Basic Reports,” Crystal provides several report wizards to step you through the creation of some popular types of reports—one of those is OLAP. The OLAP Wizard involves five steps and walks you through the process of creating an OLAP grid and an optional supporting graphic based on an existing data source. The OLAP Wizard is accessible when you are creating a new report.

The second method of creating an OLAP-based report is through the OLAP Expert that is accessed from the Insert OLAP Grid on the Insert menu. This expert provides six tabs that step through the creation of an OLAP grid to be placed anywhere on a report.
