you could easily add a linked server and connect to that.
since you specifically mentioned 2012, you are probably running 64 bit, and so you need 64 bit progress drivers before you can add the linked server. Those drivers must be installed ont he server, adn then you can add the linked server to it.

awesome, glad it's working for you!

now it's up to you and how up-to-date the data needs to be.

for a report, does the report REALLY need up to the second data, or can it be a little behind?
linked servers are notoriously slow, and you can also run into permissions issues, depending on how you set up the linked server.

i personally prefer to grab the data from a linked server at intervals with a scheduled job, and let my reports read the slightly-out-of-date-but-orders-of-magnitude-faster local data.

so my process might grab data a couple of times a day for reports, and any SSRS reports just hit a local table on my server with the data i grabbed from some remote linked servers.
