This guide will walk you through connecting SAP Crystal Reports to a MongoDB DataSet.
We recently had a tutorial rumble where we put our heads together and brainstormed ways we could help you, our loyal customers, best utilize our solutions.
SAP Crystal Reports is the de facto standard in reporting. I have been a user of Crystal Reports on and off during my nearly 20 year career in software, mostly connecting to relational data sources like MS SQL and Oracle.
I have had more and more customers expressing interest in connecting Crystal Reports to MongoDB using ODBC. This inspired me to whip up a quick and easy walkthrough documenting the process of reporting against MongoDB using the Progress ODBC Driver for MongoDB.
Note: This guide assumes you have MongoDB installed with the “Restaurants” MongoDB Data Set. The “Restaurants” MongoDB Data Set can be found here.
At this point, you should have access to all your MongoDB data from the familiar interface of Crystal Reports, and you’ve done it with the proven performance of Progress DataDirect. If that’s not true—what are you waiting for? Head to our website to see the full suite of DataDirect connectors and start integrating!
