Answer / nazer mohamed

Advantages
----------

1. Secure as End user cannot modifiy the data which is
appear in the report if we use crystal report to show the
report but in HTML, user can modify the report data

2. Report layout is not transparent, so that end user will
not know about how we design the report. But in HTML,
anybody can study the report layout and can copy the
technology

3. Can export into different format like PDF, HTML, XML,
etc.,

and many more...

Disadvantages
-------------

1. End user need to have the crystal report viewer in his
PC in order to see the crystal report output. But this can
be overcome if you export the report as PDF/HTML

2. You need to buy Crystal Report license for each pc you
are used to design the crystal report.

3. Must buy the version which allows you to install run
time components in end user PC

and many more...

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!
