Crystal Reports is one of the most powerful software packages on the market and is used across all business sectors and industries. The author writes: "Throughout my entire career, one of the most common phrases I hear is: 'The software can't do it.' As a result, Crystal Reports has a poor reputation within the IT community, and is one of the widest implemented, yet most underutilised software packages. Ninety nine percent of the time, Crystal Reports can do 'it', or rather could do it if the report writer knew how to write formulas. Yet, no Crystal Reports books available cover formulas in any sort of depth....until now." Formulas are as powerful to Crystal Reports as macros are to MS Excel. Unfortunately, while numerous books exist focusing on learning macros for all skill levels, none exist for Crystal Reports formulas. This book sets out to redress the balance and provide the first step by step guide for creating formulas, for all versions of Crystal Reports, which is aimed at people with little or no programming knowledge.

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a relentless condition, the primary symptom being the occurrence of terrifying ideas, images, and urges that jump into a person's mind and return again and again, despite the individual's attempt to remove them. Christians who suffer from OCD may grapple with additional guilt, as the undesired thoughts are frequently of a spiritual nature. Yet people may be surprised to learn that some of the greatest leaders in Christian history also struggled with this malady. What did they experience? How did they cope? Were they able to overcome these tormenting, often violent, obsessions? Where did God fit into the picture? Ian Osborn shares the personal accounts of Martin Luther, John Bunyan, and Saint Thérèse of Lisieux, as well as his own story, in exploring how faith and science work together to address this complex issue.
Over six terrifying, desperate days in October 1929, the fabulous fortune that Americans had built in stocks plunged with a fervor never seen before. At first, the drop seemed like a mistake, a mere glitch in the system. But as the decline gathered steam, so did the destruction. Over twenty-five billion dollars in individual wealth was lost, vanished, gone. People watched their dreams fade before their very eyes. Investing in the stock market would never be the same. Here, Wall Street Journal bureau chief Karen Blumenthal chronicles the six-day period that brought the country to its knees, from fascinating tales of key stock-market players, like Michael J. Meehan, an immigrant who started his career hustling cigars outside theaters and helped convince thousands to gamble their hard-earned money as never before, to riveting accounts of the power struggles between Wall Street and Washington, to poignant stories from those who lost their savings—and more—to the allure of stocks and the power of greed. For young readers living in an era of stock-market fascination, this engrossing account explains stock-market fundamentals while bringing to life the darkest days of the mammoth crash of 1929.
