Choosing data source by parameter

Good morning, all! I was wondering if it is possible to choose which data source is used for a report via parameter. Basically, I'll have a check box, if it is 'True', use one data source, if 'False', use another.

I've looked for examples, but didn't really find anything.....



  • Hi Scott,

    I created a simple example in 16.4 (see attached). I set a placeholder for the URL in the data source editor. Staying in the data source editor, click "Property Binding" in the left pane and you will see the code to set the data source connection URL based on the parameter.
