I had an Interview yesterday for a Crystal Reports Developer position. Some of these I have not done in my reporting experience and I had just a half day's notice for the interview, hence no prep time :-( 1) Is there a way to be able to change an image(company logo) dynamically in a report? Example if you have 100 reports, and with the market uncertainity if you anticipate that the company logo might change, how can you change the image just in one place and have this reflected in all teh reports at run time? 2) What is a SQL expression? 3) What are field expressions and what are the diff types? (I looked this up in the internet and never found anything with regards to types of field expressions) The interviewer really got me confused as I felt he was not clearly setting forth his questions but it could be that I was unable to understand his wording of the questions. I expect a big zero from his feedback but I am hoping this is an experience for future interviews that I face in crystal reports when I do get some more lined up. Thanks in advance!
