I have to print the company name on each report, can i store the company name in the repository items of the Business Objects and drop it on each report whenever i start building the new one(Like Page Number or Date). and also i think its easy to make changes at one place if there needs to updated.
Is there any way to deal with this?

    I haven't used the repository but I know you can store formulas.  You could create a formula that returns the company name.

    Yes, you can stored text objects in the repository.  It's a great way to store company names, copyright notices, etc..  Even better, should you ever need to change a text object, you only have to do it once and reconnect it to the repository - all other reports that use it will update the next time they're run!
