On a daily basis, Sally needs to send a report detailing their top grossing customers. This report details order amounts for each firm by month, and exports the report in Excel format. Users have been quite content to look at this report in the past, however, due to the increased order volume, the report has become unwieldy. Writing separate reports is too much time and effort. Sally needs a way of breaking up this report so that its a much easier read for the users. Section group bursting in CRD is an easy way to burst Crystal Reports to multiple Excel tabs making it easier for users to view the information they want.

How can a reporting administrator make delivering and viewing reports more manageable without re-writing or condensing reports?

At some point, Crystal Report administrators must break the chains of manually distributing reports. Liberation does not come easy, however. One cannot simply stop sending the reports; the business wouldn’t be able to function! Thus administrators must find freedom in implementing a crystal report generator that can either automatically generate Crystal Reports for users, or serve as a portal for users to access their reports.
