Title: poor article

I have VS.NET 2008 and there isn't "Format Graphic" when right-click on picture and just there is "Format Object" and there isn't any formula button (X+2 button) in it. It would be a good point if you inform readers about some exceptions.
Thank You
Title: API is powerful, but...

This article is a great starting point for all Crystal developers not very familiar with the Crystal API. You can really program whole report instead of using standard design.
But it is such a headache to support those reports. Contrary to the goal of this article - declare separation of business rules and presentation - this approach just mixing both together. I would use stored procedures where it is possible (unfortunately it is quite often a DBA privilege)

While Crystal Reports maintains its role as the leader in reporting software it still challenges non technical users, if you want to overcome this issue come Demo Windward reports here
