I have tried to get this report to work to no avail, either. I downloaded what I believe to be the latest code, I am using SSRS2005 from within VS2005. I have set up the serverlist to only point to a remote dev box that I use all the time, but is sql2k, not 2k5.

"Cannot create a connection to data source "test"
An error has occurred while establishing a connection to the server. When connecting to Sql Server 2005 (which I am not), this failure may be caused by the fact that under the default settings sql server does not allow remote connections. (provider: Named Pipes Provider, error: 40 - Could not open a connection to sql server)"
My serverlist and the static data source are on this dev box,and when I hit the exclamation point in the data tab, it brings back a server list result set, so I know I can connect to it.

When I hard code the data connection string, it works fine. it just doesnt like the dynamic part.

Also, what is the @loginname param used for? where is it set?

Thanks!
