Why Implement the Crystal Repository?

Imagine the real-life situation where an organization has thousands of Crystal reports, some of which have a copyright notice on the bottom of each page. The legal department decides it wants to change the verbiage on this copyright notice. The administrator faces three problems: which reports have this notice, how to make this change in a timely fashion, and how to effectively make these types of changes in the future.

Without the repository the administrator would have the unfortunate task of checking each individual desktop and any shared drives to locate the reports. Each report would have to be checked for the copyright notice and the change made.
