A package can have many data sources. 

Really, the best and fastest way to determine this information is to open the model which contains the package.

A slightly slower method is via lineage.   Select things in the package's metadata tree in report studio and choose lineage from the context menu. Click on the technical view tab.  Scroll over to the data sources section.  Note the values in the properties. Repeat this until you have done it for everything that you can see in the metadata tree.

Go to the properties of the report and choose "General" -> "Advanced".
You can find the data source package on the last line.

Erikc,

Thanks for reply.

It shows only package name, not Data source name it is point to.
