Bind a Report to a Shared Data Source (SSRS)
In some situations, such as when you move a report from a test server to a production server, you might want to save the file to your local computer and then upload it to a different report server. When you upload the report to the new server, you need to rebind it to a shared data source that is stored on the new report server. If you don't rebind the report, it will not work correctly when accessed from the new report server.
Before rebinding a report to a shared data source, the data source must already exist on the report server or SharePoint library. For more information about data sources, see Create, Modify, and Delete Shared Data Sources (SSRS).
