How to configure dynamic data source for DevExpress

Im currently looking into using DevExpress as our reporting service and I noticed that the configured datasource wasnt automatically assigned to the database that our application was using. Is there an extra step that I missed to correctly configure this?

I noticed this when I imported a report from crystal report and the report gave an error based on the data source.

Hi Teun,

Not that I have extensive knowledge of the DevExpress Reporting designer, but when importing Crystal Report reports I would expect the data sources to be copied with the report. However, it may not have been possible and now the data sources should be reconnected. I believe it’s simply opening up the report in the Designer and reconnect the data sources to the Database and tables/views. That should do the trick.

Hope it helps!
