Where is the best place to save subreports using Crystal Reports?

Where is the best place to save subreports using Crystal Reports?  We are considering the repository or a shared drive.

These subreports (6) are placed in the report header and will return report metadata and parameter descriptions.  There will be dozens of reports using these subreports.  Another consideration is that the format of the subreports may change.  If possible, we would like changes made to the subreports automatically display in the main reports.

I would keep them in the same place as the reports probably in a COMMON or SUBREPORT folder.  You could keep them in the repository probably controlled so users can't run them by themselves.

There is an option in the subreport formatting to REIMPORT ON OPEN.
I believe it is on the last tab of the formatting popup.

As a warning reimporting on open will slow down the running of the reports so unless they are changing frequently I wouldn't use it as it could cause users to be dissatisfied with report performance.
