The Crystal Reports Viewer from SAP is a tool used to open RPT files generated by the developer’s report-generation software. While it is incapable of report generation itself, it is nevertheless able to serve as an alternative for a report engine when it comes to modification of report views. For instance, it allows users to dynamically explore reports by sorting through the reported data using particular parameters, summarizing operations, and more. In a sense, users are able to “re-present” data they receive through reports, keeping the essential information while transforming the manner in which it is delivered so that it suits their needs better. This can lead to lower IT expenses for certain corporations by reducing the resources and personnel needed for these purposes.
Since users are able to save as many customized report views as they like with the software, they can easily redistribute them to others. They can also perform sharing through the company’s secured Crystal Server online. Any reports being viewed by the software that are located on the developer’s server can also be refreshed for quick updates.
The program is free and is capable of saving customized data views in either MS Office or PDF formats.
File.org aims to be the go-to resource for file type- and related software information. We spend countless hours researching various file formats and software that can open, convert, create or otherwise work with those files.
