Reasons to hate Crystal Reports

1) It neither reads or can write numbers in scientific notation – that is true, if some of those comes into your report, you need to write a script that splits on the “E” and calculate from there
2) Hopeless debugging. It is ok to get a warning when some code will not run, but if you makes it return early for debugging, then the code will not run.
3) It is only able to rotate a text 0,90,180,270 degrees.
4) It is not possible to edit the sql outside the Database idiot, sorry database expert.
