I have imported some rdl files into rs that use a different credential type than our current reports.I need to to change the connection string for the new reports to be the same as our current reports use.

this is the error msg I get.

A connection cannot be made to the database.
Set and test the connection string.


------------------------------
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

You have specified integrated security or credentials in the connection string for the data source, but the data source is configured to use a different credential type. To use the values in the connection string, you must configure the unattended report processing account for the report server. (Microsoft.ReportingServices.DataExtensions)

Here is a link that can help you set the connection strings
http://www.connectionstrings.com/?carrier=sqlserver2005
Based on your error message you are trying connect to the database using integrated authentication, where as the database is not supported to do.

Based on this error message, if you want to use integrated security ensure the windows/domain user Id running the sql report services has access to the database

hope this helps

Thanks for the reply, where do I find the connection string so I can edit it?

I have looked in the report properties and the code view but cannot find connectstring tag or property.

Thanks for the reply, I have already done that . the error msg I receive comes after I change the dataset to one we already use.
