Defining Report Data

SQL Server 2000

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.

The following table describes the topics in this section.

Topic Description
Connecting to a Data Source Describes data sources and how to create them.
Querying a Data Source Describes datasets and how to use them to retrieve data from a data source.
Filtering Data Describes various methods of filtering data in a report.
Working with Data Regions Describes data regions such as table, matrix, list, and chart.
Adding Fields to a Report Discusses fields and how to display data in a report.
