Crystal Server Repository Graphics Objects
Posted on 2011-10-04
Can anybody explain the purpose of the graphics folder on the Crystal Server? I originally thought it was available as a dynamic source for all reports that contained a particular object. If a report had a graphic from the repository in it and the original graphic was changed in the repository, then all the reports would update automatically with the new graphic. However, I did a test and that is not what happened. It's pretty much just working as a file share.
Next question - we have a receipt that prints a different logo in the header depending on which division received the gift. The size of the report is a bit large because the graphics files are a bit large. What is the best way to optimize the graphics so the report size is minimized? (Again, I thought using the repository would work as the actual graphics would be stored on the server but no dice).
