Is it possible to have a Telerik Report connect to an IBM i Access for Windows ODBC data source?  Or is this not a compatible database type for Telerik?  If it is possible, does it require a certain version of Telerik Reporting?  I'm currently using Q3 2011.

Hi Keith,

As explained in this KB article:

"The SqlDataSource component would list and work with any ADO.NET provider that is correctly registered on the device. The list with ADO.NET providers is taken as described in Obtaining the DbProviderFactory MSDN article and lists all of the provider factories registered in the machine.config."

Thus if there is a valid .NET provider that can work with your database, you can use it in Telerik Reporting. You can obtain the data using SqlDataSource component, or retrieve it in a custom object using your own  data layer and then wrap that object with an ObjectDataSource component.

Let us know if you have any further questions.

Have you tried the new visualization options in Telerik Reporting Q2 2013? You can get them from your account.
