Setting default refresh options

Is it possible to have the option "Use Object Repository when refreshing report" default to on when creating reports? When I create a report and add it to the repository this option is unchecked, meaning that I have to go and manually set it for a report.

    Are you referring to when you publish a report to Enterprise you have to go in and manually set it to use the object repository?

    What version of CR?

    In CRXI, when you are saving the report to the repository, you have the option to Enable Repository Refresh right before saving.  It will be a check box at the bottom of the save screen.

    Try this.  It works for othe roptions.

    Open Crystal (no report)
    Click FILE --> OPTIONS
    Find the option and turn it on
    Close Crystal - It should now be the default.  Obviously if it isn't available in the OPTION popup this won't work.
