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!

Answer / hemalatha

One feature is there in crystal report xi.First To insert
an image we are doing Insert->click Picture -> we select a
picture from a directory that you have access to and click
on open and insert the picture where in report header
section.
To make the above object dynamic we can follow below steps:
1.Right-click the static OLE object that you inserted, and
choose Format
Graphic from the shortcut menu.
2. In the Format Editor, click the Picture tab, and then
click the Conditional
Formula button adjacent to the Graphic Location label.
3. In the Formula Workshop, create the path
For example, if your path is stored in a database field,
add that field to the
formula.
4. Click Save and close to return to the Format Editor.
5. Click OK to return to your report.
6. Click Refresh to update the reference link

Answer 1:
Yes,there is a way.User may create a word document,embed
the required image as a picture object in it and then embed
this word document inturn into Crystal reports(as a linked
OLE object).

Any change in the word document would reflect in all he
reports using this word doc.

Answer / shashi

SQL Expression is one Feature in Crystal report,by SQL
commands we pull the data from data base server to crystal
report.

Advantage:it's reduce the load on the server. bz we are not
loading all the table into Crystal reports, just we are
loading what we want using SQL.
