    Hi Vijay,

    Unfortunately, that is the only way to go around this.

    If table names in the Prod Database are same as the ones in Dev, then you really don't need to set datasource. You just need to make sure that both the DEV and PROD servers have the same DSN names and that the report is based off of this ODBC Connection.
