How to: Generate Report Models (SharePoint Integrated Mode)

New: 12 December 2006

Before you can begin to create reports in Report Builder, at least one model must be available within the SharePoint farm.

You can generate models from an Analysis Services cube, a SQL Server database, or an Oracle database by using a SharePoint product or technology. Report models are generated from shared data sources that are published to a report server in SharePoint integrated mode and can be accessed via a SharePoint library. Before you can generate a report model, a shared data source file must be available in the SharePoint site or library. For more information, see How to: Create and Manage Shared Data Sources (SharePoint Integrated Mode). For more information on enabling report model generation, see How to: Add Report Server Content Types to a Library (SharePoint Integrated Mode).
