You can also find a report that uses a specific data source as opposed to finding the data source that a report uses. For example, you may want to know which reports use a specific data source.
You must generate cross-reference information for your application before you can find the data source for a report. The data source will not display if the cross-reference system does not exist or is out of date.
For more information, see How to: Create the Cross-Reference System.
For information on the data source of a report, see How to: Define a Report Dataset.
To find the data source
In the AOT, expand the SSRS Reports node, expand the Reports node, right-click the report for which you want to find the data source, click Add-ins, click Cross-reference, and then click Using (instant view). The data source for the report will display in the Complete cross-reference for the selected nodes form.
To determine the report that is using a data source
In the AOT, right-click the data source. For example, in the Data Dictionary > Tables node, right-click the CustTable table, click Add-ins, click Cross-reference, and then click Used By. The reports that use the CustTable table as a data source display.
