How do I open an RPT file in Windows 10?
An RPT file contains a report generated by various applications such as document preparation programs or system utilities. It is typically -based but may also store the information in a proprietary binary format. Since most RPT files are saved in format most of the files can be opened using a editor such as Microsoft Notepad or Apple TextEdit. If the RPT file is saved in a proprietary format you will most likely need to use the program that created the file to open it.
How can I create a Crystal Report, like reports in PHP?
Im not sure if you can. CR is a skill set of its own. Php Reports uses code to design a report. Crystal Reports uses a GUI to design reports. Most of your work is drag and drop. It was designed to be used by an analyst not a developer. You connect to a db you hopefully have a view or stored procedure that massages and processes the data before it gets to your report. You can process data inside the report but everything works best if you get SQL to do its best with the data before it gets picked up by CR. Then inside CR you place fields into the detail section the grouping to group by and so on. Its like a visual representation of a sql query. I usually put fields inside of formulas and then dump the formula to the report when I work. When I build reports in CR not a single field makes it to the canvas without being put through a formula. This allows you to handle specific values the way you want instead of mucking with the display and it also allows you to change which field is being focused on in the formula. Otherwise to make a change you have to go back and change every instance on your report canvas. For example if you have a customer id that cane from any of three fields in a query but you don know which one you can fit all three into a formula and test each one and output the one where the customer id is present. CR has its own language or you can use a form of basic. It supports both except when it is selecting data. At that point you have to use the CR language. It processes the data in a 33pass process managing the grouping on the second pass. The third pass is reserved for subreports and the shared variables (global variables are different than shared or local variables and handled at the second pass). So if you want a crystal report you have to work within Crystal Reports to get the results you want.
How can you create a bar-code in crystal reports?
Using the Barcode Fonts in Crystal Reports Open the Field Explorer in Crystal Report. ordered-list 2. Create a new formula by right clicking Formula Field and select New. 3. Give the new formula a name (e.g barcode39). 4. You will now see the Formular Workshop. Set the syntax of the formula to 'Basic Syntax'. 5. Copy the formula for the barcode that you intend to use from the file (in the Resource subdirectory) to the Crystal Report's Formula Editor. For example if you want to use Code39 copy the Encode_Code39 formula and paste it into the Formula Editor. 6. Modify the 'data = 12345678' statement so that it connects to your data source. For example change the statement to data = ( ) . 7. Save the formula and drag it to your report to create a formula field. 8. Set the font of the formula field to the appropriate barcode font. For example for Code 39 the font can be CCode39_S2 or CCode39_S3. (Note the font preview in the drop down list of Crystal Reports may appear as barcodes) 9. Click on the Preview tab to see the generated barcode.
