Characteristic Description

Base data types

None

Derived data types

RelationalDataSource, OlapDataSource, PushedDataSource

When defining out-of-line bindings, the Name element is optional. Not having to specify a Name element allows data sources to be defined within the binding for cubes, partitions, and so on. For data sources contained by a Database element, Name is a required element.

For more information about data sources, see Data Sources (Analysis Services).

The corresponding element in the Analysis Management Objects (AMO) object model is DataSource.
