Business Objects Desktop Intelligence
Advanced Reporter Course
Request more details:
This course is intended for those who have been using Business Objects Desktop Intelligence for some time and are familiar with the content of the Introductory Reporter Course.
Delegates attending this course will learn how to build queries using advanced report-writing techniques for in-depth analysis of business information. They will learn how to create flexible reports for use by “Explorers” – Business Objects users who don’t have access to the Query Panel and so are unable to build queries, but who are able to open documents created by others and manipulate, analyse and present the data in a variety of ways.
Duration: 1 Day
