The Crystal Repository is the central location to store and manage report objects. Data definitions, such as custom functions and SQL commands, can also be stored and maintained in the Crystal Repository. The Crystal Repository can store bit maps such as map images from ArcView, ArcEditor, or ArcInfo. The objects are then accessible to users and report developers for use in new reports that can be distributed throughout the company. By storing objects such as map images in the Crystal Repository, users will dramatically increase their report creation and design productivity by pulling existing images into a new report or automatically updating map images in one central location.
By maintaining a shared repository of report objects, users can modify a particular object and update all reports containing that object as they are opened for use. A central location for report objects also helps with the task of managing data—an important benefit in maximizing productivity and minimizing business costs.
