One Report needs to connect to 20 different databases

Post Author: macgary

CA Forum: Data Connectivity and SQL

We have 20 identical databases - structurally - but differing in their regional data.

We have created some various reports that need to run against various databases in SQL Server. I would like to avoid having to create 20 variations of each report varying only in their database connections.

Does anyone have an idea of how I can pass the database name into the connection so I can make the one report work on any of my structurally similar databases?

Thanks,

Gary
