Defining Report Data
After creating a new report, you define connection information for the report and specify a query. Connection information is stored in the report definition as a data source. Query information is stored in the report definition as a dataset. A report can contain multiple datasets. Once datasets are defined, you can create data regions that contain fields to display report data.
