Add new data soure > data base - > data set - > new connection
Data source = Microsoft SQL Server (SqlClient)
Server Name = Your server name \ IP (must be IP if it is on a web server)
Use SQL Server Authentication (Set user name and password)
Browse or attach your data base.

take a look at this standard page for connection strings
Be aware on that page that asking a question about your external database is the same as telling in a garage that you have a problem with the motor of a car at phone to a garage if you don't tell the brand and type.

Any update there?
What type of your external database is? Could you please show us the detailed error message you received?
