I am trying to edit a report that I did not create. This report calls 4 different stored procedures.

What I have done is edited one of the four stored procedures. Now I want to call this new stored procedure in the report instead of the old one.

Whenever I go to the Data tab on this report, I get this error: The data source was not found. Add the data source to the data set before proceeding or choose another data source.

So what I have done is created a new datasource for each SP and pointed them to the correct DB and made a new call to the modified SP.

This errors out as well.

The old dataset is as follows:

DataSource -> Correct one
Command Type -> Text
Query String -> nameofSP (not EXEC nameofSP)

I was thinking its as simple as changing my query string to the modified SP but no.

Can anyone be of assistance for this?

Thank you in advance

it may be that datasource was not included in the project. You can download datasource also just like you got RDL file from server and work with that. Otherwise you've create a new dataset to work with. And while deploying you need to make sure you dont deploy newly created datasource but after deployment you need to point it to existing one it was using in the server
