Creating a report from a template ensures continuity in design across the reports you create. Besides, it saves the time in creating and formatting the reports.
Templates help ensure that every report you produce follows the same reporting standards. These standards can include the placement of a logo, date, page number, and changes to the font size and style of the report.
Consider this scenario: You want to create a large number of standardized reports in Crystal Reports. To help save time in the future, you decide to create a report template with fields common to all of your company's standardized reports, such as Page Number, Report Title, and Date. You need to save the template as Report_Template.
