I am working on existing report, this report was developed sourcing several xml files. Now I wanted to import some SQL Server tables and need to link to the xml files. Does this works?

When I create a link I have a Visual Linking message as:
Your current link configuration contains multiple starting points. Please be advised that this is generally not supported.

What this means? Can’t I use multiple sources in a single report?


RE: can use multiple sources in a single report/

You get that if you have a table not linked to the others.
Scroll down, the unlinked table may be at the bottom of the view in Links in Database Expert. If all are linked, it should work, and should let you ignore the warning.
