Select the Data Binding Mode

On this wizard page, you can choose one of the following data binding modes.

  • Retrieve the data source schema - Select this option to retrieve only the data source schema from the specified object and edit the report layout without having access to the actual underlying data.
  • Retrieve the actual data - Select this option to automatically create an instance of the data source type and obtain its actual data.

Click Finish exit the Data Source Wizard.

Note

The Next button is enabled when you use the Report Wizard to connect a report to an object data source. Click this button to proceed to the next Report Wizard wizard once you select the data binding mode.
