      Is it possible to use an external data source with IWP.

       

      I can connect to an external data source using a client (tables and relationships work as expected), but when I try to view the data using IWP the records are missing. 

       

      Any ideas?

          Do you have your user name and password for the external data source specified under Manage External Data Sources?  IWP/CWP cannot prompt the user for the additional database password, so it has to be embedded.  I was having this same problem until I included the user name and password.

            Hi,

            Do you have your user name and password for the external data source specified under Manage External Data Sources?  IWP/CWP cannot prompt the user for the additional database password, so it has to be embedded.  I was having this same problem until I included the user name and password.

             This thread is pretty old but I would very much like to know how to embed the username and password when setting a data source.
            Any ideas will be appreciated...
