    Hello Rick Dedrick,

     When using OpenAccess you should be able to give the objects that you get with it as a data source for your reports. For more information you can take a look at the following:

    If the above documents do not help, we will need more details about your specific case in order to be able to help you further.

    All the best,

    Hi Jordan, please reference the following URL:

    http://www.devx.com/dbzone/Article/31336

    In this article, you will see that to allow Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) to access data from a data provider that does not ship in the SSRS box, a person/company needs to provide a Custom Data Extension (CDE) to access their data objects...and I believe that this is where OpenAccess ORM falls into this category.

    My question to your team:  Does OpenAccess ORM provide a CDE for SSRS or not?

    Thanks very much for your previous prompt reply...rick

    Hello Rick Dedrick,

     Unfortunately we have not implemented an OpenAccess CDE for SSRS. And since you are the first to ask for this feature we have not included such functionality in our TODO list.

    Now that you ask for this, we will add it to our TODO list, and it will be very helpful if you could share with us more information about your case, and also any suggestions or feature requests that you might have for this CDE.
