Hi all,

I am a newbie to SSRS, I am trying hands on , on my first SSRS project. I am trying to Specify the DataSource connection of the another server which is not local to me. I search on internet, on how to specify another server in the connection string of Data Source but to no help.

Could any body please help me on how to write the connection string for the data source in order to connect to the server which is not local to me.

Hi,

Did you tried this?

Data Source=SERVERADDRESS;Initial Catalog=DBNAME

Where you need to replace SERVERADDRESS with the address of the server and DBNAME with the database name.
