Unanswered: Reporting automation using SQL SERVER 2008 R2 Reporting Services
I am a relatively new user of SQL SERVER 2008 R2 Reporting services and am in the process of automating (subscriptions) much of our reporting needs.
I have a batch of reports that follow this scenario that I would like to automate from the current manual process.
I have two separate databases on two different servers. I use ODBC connections to query both servers.
ODBC1 on the first server returns the following data fields:
This is saved as query1
ODBC2 on the second server returns the following data fields:
WHERE LN_EXTRA.doc_type = 'COLLATERAL'
This is saved as query 2
Both queries are imported into MS ACCESS as new tables
Left Outer Join query1.acn = query2.acct
Left Outer Join query1.ln_sfx = query2.ln_sfx
Query run to return the following:
Where query2.doc_type does not equal 'COLLATERAL'
I would love to be able to automate this process into SSRS. I understand there may be a way to "link" these two tables and design a report in SSRS that would be able to accomplish my goal.
Any help would be greatly appreciated....

- on the wrong server
Link one server to the other and then only execute one procedure.
