On this Business Objects training course you'll learn lots of easy-to-use and time-saving tricks that will speed up your work-flow with Business Objects and show you just how powerful the software really is. The course pretty much carries on where the Business Objects Introductory training course left off, with some revision of the Intro course topics just to get you warmed up. This also makes it ideal for those of you who have perhaps been using Business Objects for a while but maybe never had any formal training.
