Report Analyzer 5.0 requires Crystal Reports XI runtime files. If you do not have Crystal Reports XI installed on the PC were Report Analyzer will be used, please also download and install the runtime below.
|comprehensive analysis of your Crystal Reports|
|reducing maintenance time and effort|
|test plan development|
|extensive documentation of your Crystal Reports.|
Report Analyzer automatically detects potential performance issues in your Crystal Reports design settings, including record selection formulas, grouping options and database options.
Report Analyzer documents over 30 design and style settings in your Crystal Reports.
Dependencies between Crystal Report objects such as formulas, SQL expression fields, parameters and database fields are easily viewed with the dependency viewer. Additionally, the powerful query feature lets you view dependency information across reporting projects.
Report Analyzer generates comprehensive documentation of your Crystal Reports with over 100 presentation quality reports. Complexity metrics assist with test case planning and maintenance estimates.
|Automatically detect reports that do not take advantage of server side database processing.|
|Detect record selection formulas which use data type conversion functions.|
|Detect group fields which use formulas instead of SQL Expression fields.|
|Find report tables which use less than an optimal number of fields.|
|Discover special fields which cause an additional pass over the report data source. |
|Discover unused Formulas, Fields and Variables.|
|Identify group settings which cause blank pages and footers.|
|Identify missing standard Crystal documentation best practices (Report Title, Author, Description special fields).|

|Use interactive diagrams (trees) of formula hierarchies, object dependencies and report design elements.|
|Query and print over 600 report settings across all documented reports. Perform instant impact assessment for database changes and formula changes across all documented reports.|
|Locate which reports use specific functions, parameters, and design settings. |
|Generate summary and detailed documentation.|
|Analyze report complexity metrics to assist with test plan development and maintenance planning.|
|Easy to use documentation explorer to browse and compare report design settings.|
|Print report design diagrams.|
|Print report data dictionaries.|
|Extensive formula printouts including call trees, object cross references, formatted listing, and conditional formulas.|
|All documentation can be exported in a variety of formats including PDF, HTML and Word.|
