Updated: 5 December 2005

Use the References tab of the Report Properties dialog box to add references to custom or other external assemblies and custom class instances that are used by expressions in the report definition.

Classes

Class name

Type the name of the class.

Instance name

For classes that have dependencies, you can move this reference higher in the list.

Down

For classes that have dependencies, you can move this reference lower in the list.
