Understanding How the Repository Works

The Crystal Repository that ships with Crystal Reports 9 is a standalone database. It is a Microsoft Access database that Crystal Reports maintains, which means that Crystal Reports internally understands how to create the tables and structures it requires to make the repository work.

If a new repository database is needed, all Crystal needs to know is where the database is located. The database itself need not have any tables or fields in it prior to populating the repository with objects and folders. Crystal Reports will create all the necessary tables and fields to make the repository work successfully. Be aware that a report can only connect to one repository at a time.
