Use a variable from a different data sources in SAS VA

How can I use a variable from a different data source into my report.  Both sources have a common key. For example in one report I am using contract number and a product Id.  Now I want to bring the customer name from a different data source using the contract number as a primary key for both sources.

Hi,

To get the functionality as you require, you have to use "Prepare Data" using the common field or primary key. According to my knowledge it can't be achieved directly in the report designer if you are having two different data sources with common field.

Adding to Abhishek's comment, here is where you can find some information about using the data builder (data preparation) to create a data query:
