Can the datasets in SSRS in the reort data be copied? I know that shared datasets can be copied... but here is my issue.

I have multiple versions of a report. The report data dataset has many calculated fields. I do not have the option to copy the datasets from the UI in SSRS. Can I update the datasets from the SSRS database?

I have many calculated fields and filters. Currently, I have to recreate them all if I cannot copy the dataset. This is extremely time consuming.

Any suggestions?

you can get dataset details through reporting services webservice methods. All dataset details are stored in catalog tables within report server database
