This wizard step appears only if you're creating a new report from scratch. In this instance, familiarity with database connections is required, so we recommend that you contact your application administrator or vendor for assistance. If you're modifying an existing report, you will skip this step and start with Step 4 - Choose Columns to Display in Your Report.
Connect to a database whose data will be shown in your report.
On this page you can either select one of the data connections currently available in the drop-down list, or create a new one. To create a new connection, click the New Connection... button. It invokes a Data Link Properties dialog, allowing you to set up a new database connection.
Once a connection has been set up, click Next to proceed to Step 3 - Choose the Table or View.
