Crystal ReportsŪ written for your system:
"Data Dictionary" documentation for your database:
An alternative to Data Dictionary Documentation is creating actual Data Dictionaries for your company. Most Proprietary report writers use pre-defined data dictionaries. Often this makes the application easy to learn and use. Crystal Reports has that same flexibility. Custom data dictionaries can be created for your company.
Data Conversion Reports:
Are moving from one accounting system to another? Did you know the most efficient way to migrate your data from one system to another is "run it through a translator". Crystal is that translator. You can purify data and rework data to match your new system. Forget about beginning balance only conversions. Using this technique you can convert full transactional history. Since the reports are saved, you can rerun them over and over for testing or pilot conversions. If you translate the data in Excel, you spend all that time and have to get right the first time. Using this method, you can do the testing many times over until the results are exactly what you want.
