Questions:

1) Is it possible to have report templates saved in the repository in Crystal reports?  
2) How do you share report templates among different report writers?  
3) Lastly (for now) if graphics from the repository are loaded onto reports, is each instance of that graphic changed when the original is changed?

1. I don't know for sure but I think it is possible  I don't have the Enterprise tools to create a repository.

2.  If they are in the repository, it should be as easy as giving them access to the repository.

3.  If they are linked to the repository graphic then they should.  If you embed the graphic in the report then you would have to update each separately.

When I am going to build a series of reports based on the same basic template, I create an RPT file with the basics then use it as the starting point for the reports.
