New features in Crystal Reports 2011

Tuesday 24 May 2011 @ 5:55 pm

We have waited 3 years for a new version of Crystal Reports, so you might be a bit disappointed at the list of new features.   They are the ability to:

1) Export to XLSX format which gets you past the 65K limit on rows.
2) Export to RPTR format, a format that can’t be opened in the Crystal Designer, but can only be run in one of the report viewers. This lets your users run your reports without giving them access to any proprietary information contained in the RPT file.

For an explanation of which viewers can run RPTR files you can read this article.

Also note that this is officially version 14, not version 13. Version 13 is the developer engine in Visual Studio 2010.

    I read something about “pixel perfect” design. Am I recalling properly and if so what does this mean? And has there been any improvement in the dashboarding integration?

    “Pixel perfect design” is SAP’s way of describing Crystal’s ability to do whatever layout you want. This isn’t anything new.

    I haven’t heard anything about improved dashboard integration.
