Creating a data source connection

  1. Open the Tools dashboard and select Report Administration. The Reporting Services Administration screen is displayed.
  2. Select Server Administration > New Data Source. The Data Source screen is displayed.
  3. Specify this information:
    Specify a name for the data source.
    Optionally, specify a description for the data source.
    Select the connection type.
    Note: If you are setting up an ODBC data source to use with Crystal Server, use the Crystal ODBC driver. You must install the Crystal ODBC driver to any machine used for designing reports and the Crystal Server as well. When designing reports with an ODBC data source, select drivers with the CR prefix. Follow this process for all database types except SQL.

    Additionally, If you are setting up an OLEDB data source to use with Crystal Server, you can use Infor OLEDB Object Services.

  4. Click Next. The Data Source Maintenance screen is displayed where the upper fields are populated from the previous create screen.
