To add a new resource, select the New Resource command. After loading, the resources can be used in the development of reports.

Images in Resources in Reports.Net, Reports.Web, Reports.Wpf
Images of different types can be included into your reports. To do this, you need create a new resource in the data dictionary, and load an image into it. This resource can be used as a component of the report image or the image watermark.

Data from Files in Saved Resources in Reports.Net, Reports.Web, Reports.Wpf
You can include data files into the report. To do this, you have to create a new resource in the data dictionary and upload CSV, DBF, Excel, JSON or XML data file. Then, based on this resource, you can create a data source and render a report. In this case, both the data and report will be stored jointly.
