Hi All,

I am still a newbie with SSRS, but I have 6 databases all with the same schema. Right now I know how to build individual reports for each site creating 6 reports with 6 a data sources assigned to each one.

Is there a way I could build a report that the end user could select from which database to pull the data from and could there be a option to pull all data in one consolidated report? Any help would greatly be appreciated.

Thanks!

Welcome!,

Did a little digging around both on here and the internet and found a couple of really good examples showing how to do exactly what you are asking about.

Thank you for the quick reply! I was searching for the wrong thing. I'll try it out next week.
