How to change the datasource ...

Im using Reporting Services 2005 and need to change the Data Source by passing a parameter of the name of the database to use.

How do I do this?

I'm not sure how you would acomlish that directly with reporting services, however, you could do the same by populating the report via a stored procedure that runs a distributed query where the server name is a parameter for the stored procedure.  I do this for a number of applications.
