Hi geniuses!
I need to merge 2 databases to colect information for my reports.

Have really no clue about how to set things up.
The query must be written into the query 'box' of the Dataset Properties, RIGHT?

Thanks in advance.
Regards!

What it looks like you need is a UNION clause, either in a stored proc on direct in the data set.

SELECT
1,2,3
FROM
DB1.dbo.Table2
UNION / UNION ALL
SELECT
1,2,3
FROM
DB2.dbo.Table1

OK. Thanks!
It is possible to relate 2 tables from different datasources?
For example: I have Dataset1 from Datasource1 and Dataset2 from Datasource2.
I want from Dataset1 : ProjectName;
and from Dataset2 : ProjectStage. Which is in another DB.

How do I do this and add these fields into the same tablix?

Sorry if it sounds stupid, but I'm learning, this is all new for me.

Thanks in advance.

Not sure on that, you will need to build some sort of linking in 1 of the servers.

Something like using linked servers, or building a merged database of both DB's using SSIS or something along them lines.

OK! In the mean time how do I create a Stored Procedure where I want data from 2 Databases.
I want ProjectName from DB1 & ProjectStage from DB2.

Thanks

Something like the below

SELECT
DB1.ProjectName,
DB2.ProjectStage
FROM
Database1.dbo.Table1 DB1
INNER JOIN
Database2.dbo.Table2 DB2
ON
DB1.ProjectStageID = DB2.ProjectStageID



Without knowing your data schemas it is hard to say.

This not working for some reason.

Instead, do you know a way to link different datasets from 2 different datasources in a tablix cell expression?
Dataset1 from Datasource1
Dataset2 from Datasource2

Thanks
