2 Replies and 2885 Views Crystal Effective Date Reporting  2885  2 Started by  John Henley Here's a a technique for creating effective date reports from Lawson data. In particular, this is useful for reporting from HR history data, where you want a report to reflect the value of a piece of data at a given point in time, not its current value. For example, you might want to a report listing your employees their employee status as of a given date. Read Crystal Effective Date Reporting.

3 Replies and 1147 Views Maximum number of pages of a report in LBI  1147  3 Started by  RoxanneS Our HR department wants a Crystal report published to LBI that covers 24 months worth of data and runs about 15,000 pages.  Our consultant says we can't--or maybe it's that we shouldn't--send a report that large to LBI. Anyone else sending that large of a report to LBI  Is there a maximum number of pages for a single report or some reason why we shouldn't publish this in LBI Thanks!!
