1. Open the Crystal Report.

2. Click on Insert -> Text Object and place the text object in the appropriate section. For many reports, this would be the Page Header section, so that it would appear on all of the pages.

3. Type the text of the watermark.

4. Center and resize the watermark and it's text if desired. Watermarks are usually centered and quite large.

5. Change the color of the watermark if desired (Watermarks are usually lighter than the other text on the report). To do this, right click on the text object and select 'Format Field...'. When the Format Editor opens, go to the Font tab and select the color from the color drop down box. Click the OK button to close the Format Editor.

6. Open the Section Expert by right clicking on the section containing the text object to access it's menu.

7. Once the Section Expert is open, place a check in the 'Underlay Following Sections' check box. This will cause it to appear underneath the other text on the report. Click the OK button to close the Section Expert.

8. You have now created a watermark.
