We are in the midst of upgrading from SSRS 2005 to SSRS 2008 R2, so I took note when you mentioned shared datasets. It seems like this is just a built in method of using stored procedures, though. We took the approach that everything had to be done via stored procedure so that everything was always available. Is there any advantage to the shared datasets, now that they are available?

Hi bphipps,

Shared datasets are searchable and versionable through SSRS. In addition, shared datasets can be used to access information from sources other than SQL Server.

For more information on shared datasets, I would recommend looking here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee636147.aspx

Best,
Jessica

Jessica, I've been using Reporting Services for years but I'm still on 2008 (not R2).

I have heard that when you use a shared dataset, the query for the dataset cannot be changed after it has been used in a report. Do you know if this is true? This seems to defeat the purpose of having a shared dataset!

Thanks for a great article!

Shared datasets are easy and useful. I had scenario where I needed a report to have a variable connection string so that it could connect to more than one database. The only way to get it to work is having no credentials embedded in the report, and using the SSRS un-atteneded account. That can only be done using an embedded data set.
