I just got my copy hot off the press of “Crystal Reports 2008 Official Guide”. I was excited to be a contributing author for this book, and provided two chapters about Xcelsius 2008. Chapter 20 covers Xcelsius basics including charts, selectors, containers, and design features. Chapter 21 covers advanced properties, Excel logic, and connectivity. Both chapters provide enough direction to jumpstart a new Xcelsius developer using step by step instructions to what I consider the most important Xcelsius 2008 features. If you happen to read a copy, feel free to provide me with some feedback for future editions.
