change login/password for report RRS feed

    Using VS.Net 2005

    I am trying to troubleshoot a report using a VS.Net report project and when I run it errors because it sees my username as the report username and says something like error because "SOMETHING/jdoe" and I have the actual username that I want to change to so I can put the correct username for the datasource but I do not see where I can do this. 

    I went to the "data" tab to select the correct datasource that exists for the report and I assume that there is a connection string  there that I need to change but not sure how to access it.

    Just to summarize: I want to change my local version of the report so it uses the correct username/password, not my username (in this example is 'jdoe') that is somehow defaulted to.

    How to do this?

    whenever you create a datasource and type user name and password, there is a checkbox remember me kind of, just check it. it will always take the username that you've passed.
