Working with Data in a Report Layout
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. In Reporting Services, data-bound controls in a report are called data regions. Data binding is also supported for fields and images. Once datasets are defined, you can create data regions that contain fields to display report data.
