Opening Datasource RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Friends,

    I was wondering when you use the report viewer control in a visual studio web application to render reports locally, you will add the control to a web form and then you will see the Report Data window and in there you will create a Data source and datasets. My question is, after you have created a data Source, is there a way to go back and view it or edit it? Thank You !!!

  • Hi Ronald Rex

    Based on my test ,seems in report data part you could not modified the datasource .

    While you could add the new datasource ,add the new dataset and modified the new dataset in the report part.

    If you  want to modified the datasource  , seems you need to change the connect string in the web.config file of the project .


    Seems it also more related to the visual studio aspect , you could try to get more detailed information at visual studio forum.

    Hope it can help you.
