Introduction
It is common practice to add an image to an existing report template, or to replace a logo, such as the DataNet Quality Systems logo, with your own company or product logo.  The following is a step-by-step procedure for adding a new logo to an existing Report Template within WinSPC. This procedure should work for any report template within WinSPC.
