I have been developing WebI reports for over 5 years and am always looking for new tips and tricks to make my reports better. That has been very difficult to find in other books. However, a few colleagues of mine recommended Mr. Schmidt's book and I thought I would give it a try. I was immediately impressed with the setup and flow of the book. Each page has textual information and is accompanied with an example in the form of an image which makes the topic being covered easier to comprehend.

I have to admit the experience reading this book was outstanding, it was difficult to put down, I had to try every new trick that I learned immediately. A lot of new efficient techniques are part of my toolkit now. The book is divided in to four sections and each section touches on various aspects of Web Intelligence. For new developers, the Working with Report Structures is an excellent introduction to Web Intelligence, it walks you through developing a report and also addresses various techniques that are commonly used such as Cross Tabs, Sections, Breaks etc.

I especially enjoyed the advanced sections namely Analysis and Formulas. I loved the clarity regarding context operators such as ForEach() and In(). They are used quite frequently and with the examples that Mr. Schmidt provides, it is easy to understand how each formula should be used and when it applies.

New features that were introduced in BI 4.0 by SAP are also addressed in a manner that can be easily followed. This includes aspects such as the new interface, linking with the report (selections from one component affecting other components such as charts and tables), hiding of columns, tab menu and others.

I had only used Crystal Reports prior to getting Roberts Books. Very helpful, content very easy to understand. His willingness to communicate with his readers is no joke. A little over a year ago we had several emails back and forth an I even got a phone call. He sounded excited for me and the new opportunity his books had created for me. I have a few other books (as I went purchase happy when starting out). Robert's books are the ones I reach for first every time.

This book has only five chapters. The first chapter explains all of the different report structures that we can put in reports. It goes into great detail on how tables, cross tables and charts are used to create reports. Almost all of the insecurities I used to have when adding a report element to a report are eliminated.

I am currently in the second chapter. This chapter explains how to use the analysis features of Web Intelligence. This chapter is awesome, as I am learning all of the ways that I can analyze reports. The next chapter is on Formulas. I have only scanned the pages, but it seems very informative. I already rated it 5-stars, because I have already learned so much.
