I am looking for an expert in Crystal Reports (with C# [url removed, login to view]) currently available to build around 20 reports.
There will be 4/5 reports which may be considered of high complexity, 5/6 of medium complexity and 10/11 of low complexity.
(These complexities I am mentioning are not really technical related (since I believe technical skills are similar for all reports) but more related with the workload expected in each report).
Attached you will find examples of the reports to generate.
I do use a XML file to specify all the settings for a report (this XML file will then be used by the application to “generate” and show the report to the user).
I am also attaching a XML file example – detailed explanation document is available to the selected provider.
All reports are to be build using XSD as datasource for the rpt file – I already have a very simple tool to generate the XSD file from SQL queries.
As a summary, to build each report you will have to:
1) Build the query(ies) you need to use in the report.
2) Create a XSD file to use as the Crystal Report report file (rtp) datasource.
3) Create a Crystal Report file (rpt).
4) Create a XML file.
5) Save files to the server.
6) Test it!
I am attaching an excel sheet with a specification example I send for each report.
Important: If you are not an experienced professional who has proved know-how in this type of technology, if you are not used to build professional looked reports, if you do not know what the meaning of testing a deliverable before sending it to a customer is and if you currently cannot dedicate full time to this task, please….do not answer this post – I am not looking for curious people – save us both time.
See all the samples I am attaching and see if you are really capable of accomplish this job in a reasonable ammount of time.
Please provide link (or attachment) with samples (pdf or jpg) of reports you did before.
I am using Visual Studio 2008 and MS SQL Server 2005 – the version of Crystal Reports I use is the one build in the Visual Studio 2008.
We may agree on a price to build all reports or per report.
Looking forward for your proposals.
