Chapter 17. Introduction to Crystal Repo... > Adding Objects to and from the Repos...

Adding Objects to and from the Repository

Different object types have different methods required to add the object to or from the repository.

Adding Text Objects and Images

To add text and image objects from the repository, the repository explorer should be open in Crystal Reports. To open the repository explorer, you need to authenticate with Crystal Enterprise. After this occurs, you can see all the folders and objects available in the repository. To add a text or image field, simply drag the field onto the report. You will notice that the object is read-only. To modify the object, right-click the object and select Disconnect from Repository (see Figure 17.2). You will then be able to modify the object. If the changed object is saved back into the repository with the same name, the original version will be replaced and all Crystal Reports that use this object can be updated.
