Shared Datasets...

There is a new feature in SQL Server 2008 R2 called Shared DataSets. In prior versions of reporting services one would create datasets to get the desired results/output. In cases where same datasets had to be used in different reports, one had to re-create the datasets. This situation comes up when you have the same parameters in different reports. In SQL 2008 R2, one can create shared datasets or convert a regular dataset to a shared dataset. The pre-requisite for creating a shared dataset is that it has to be done on a shared datasource. Once share datasource has been created, one can create a shared dataset or convert a normal dataset to a shared dataset. The shared dataset can be deployed like a shared datasource, shared datasets gives us improved maintainability. For a more detailed overview, click on the following link:
