Using Report Miner
Suite's Extract, users can auto-generate detailed
report definition documentation for Crystal Reports.
This allows users to quickly see all details of the
report, including database tables referenced, fields
used, group conditions, formula fields, report layout
screenshot, etc. This makes it very simple for users
to validate that the Crystal Reports are correct.
The documentation generated by Extract can be configured
to include as little or as much detail as desired, and
can be generated in Microsoft Word or simple text file
format. Extract even supports using Word templates for
the generated Word documents, which allows users to
create the documents according to existing documentation
standards. Extract will even create a Microsoft Access
database which can be used for cross-report analysis.
