I am trying to edit some of the reports for konakart. When I create new reports they run fine. But if I open one of the existing reports I get a red x next to the datasource right off the bat and I don't what to modify to make it go away so the report will run properly. I was just wondering if there is any instructions on setting up eclipse to edit these reports? I'm new to eclipse.

The reports are merely examples so feel free to change the data source if that's the way you got your new ones to work.  Indeed you will find it a lot easier when working in BIRT's designer if you hard code the datasource and not access it dynamically (as we do in the sample reports).

For more information on BIRT report design you might like to look at their tutorial at http://www.eclipse.org/birt/documentation/tutorial/tutorial-14.php
