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 provides 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 chapter introduce some of these advanced features for Crystal Reports; Crystal Analysis is introduced in Chapters 19 and 20.

Interacting with the OLAP Grid

Crystal Reports provides some powerful interactive OLAP features from directly within the Crystal Reports Preview and Design tabs. Figure 16.16 displays the right-click menu that appears when right-clicking on the year 1998 member in this chapter's sample report.
