Glossary Item Box

In ActiveReports, a shared data source refers to a file in RDSX format that contains data connection information. RDSX (Report Data Source XML) is a proprietary file format that functions as a data source for a single report or multiple reports.

You can use this data source in page reports. See Create and Edit a Shared Data Source for information on how to create a new shared data source or modify an existing one.

Advantages of a Shared Data Source

Caution: An RDSX file contains the connection string, but you cannot define a data set in it. See Add a Dataset for information on creating a data set.
