Hey all, how would I use a custom DLL in a shared dataset? I am migrating datasets over to shared datasets, and one of these has a parameter which references a DLL assembly.
On a non-shared dataset, I am able to add the assembly in to References, and give it a name, but this looks missing when creating a shared dataset in Report Builder 3.
This is similar to http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-GB/sqlreportingservices/thread/d105b147-a853-42bb-bff8-68ea4bcefe8f but I was unable to reply to this.

In Reporting Services, we can call custom code or custom assembly that is created using Microsoft .NET Framework in any expressions. Actually, the custom assembly is referenced in an RDL File. However, for a shared dataset (.rsd), it is not defined by any RDL file. So, I am afraid that a shared dataset cannot reference a custom assembly in its expressions.
I would suggest you submitting a wish at https://connect.microsoft.com/sql.
