1. Download the file from the email you receive. You can save this anywhere on your computer, prefereably on the server so that you can access it in step 2.

2. Open up the following folder on your server: Autosoft5\Crystal


3. Without changing the name of the file, copy it, and paste it into the Crystal folder. A message will come up asking you if you want to replace the file. Confirm that you do want to replace the file currently in the folder.


For reports, this will change the report. No other changes would be required. If you have any errors, there is a likelihood that this will have a new attribute built into it. This will require you to email support at
