You can use multiple data sources and also multiple datasets in the same report.  What you can't do is use data from two different datasets in the same table/matrix.  If you need to access another dataset from a certain report table, you can use the lookup functions, assuming you're using at least SSRS 2008 R2.

Why the "B" grade?

It is customary to explain any grade that is not an A.
