I am creating a report in SSRS and importing it into another application.  When I try to run it in the other application I get the error that it cannot connect to Laser(My Database).  I am an XML dummy but in all applications I have used I have to include a user name and password in the connection string to connect to a Microsoft Sql database.  Below is the connection string I copied from the XML code from my SSRS report.  What is the correct syntax to add the SA user and password?  

<DataSource Name="Laser_1">
        <ConnectString>Data Source=YLSQL02;Initial Catalog=LASER</ConnectString>
