Posted by Andrew Gould on 30 December 2020

This video explains how to create a dataset in Report Builder by either manually typing data or by copying and pasting. You'll learn how to set up a data source which allows manual data entry, as well as how to create column names and assign data types to the values you type in. You'll also learn about the changes you need to make to the Report Server Configuration file to allow the manually entered data to be saved to a report server. The final part of the video shows how to copy and paste data into a report from a range of sources such as websites, Excel workbooks and text files.
