Hi ax123, Thanks for your post. I would suggest you to change your data source connect string from http://feeds.finance.yahoo.com to http://feeds.finance.yahoo.com/rss/headline?s=yhoo, and then use this data source to create the relevant dataset, and then show the data in your report. More detailed information about how to take use of URL to feed data to SSRS Report, please refer to this link: http://www.bp-msbi.com/2011/04/feeds-in-ssrs-reports/ As for Yahoo! Finance Web Services - Company News RSS Feed, please refer to the link below: http://developer.yahoo.com/finance/company.html Thanks, Bill LuPlease remember to mark the replies as answers if they help and unmark them if they provide no help.
