IntelliBid lets you display your company logo on all printed reports. The logo is stored in a file called ReportLogo.bmp which resides on your hard drive. When you first install the program, this bitmap contains the IntelliBid logo. You can replace the IntelliBid logo with your own as long as the bitmap you create conforms to the required dimensions.
