Report Textboxes with Expressions Not Receiving Data from DataSet RRS feed

  • Question

  • I hope someone can point me in the right direction; however, I am not very optimistic.


    Using VS 2010 with VB


    I have a report that when sent to ReportViewer -  Laboratory.TestReportForm.Show()

    prints the form text as well as the database data per the expressions given for each textbox.  No problem, printed report is perfect.


    However, when I print it directly to the printer (bypassing ReportView) - Laboratory.PrintReportModule.PrintTestReport.Main(), the form text prints fine, but the textboxes holding the database expressions are left blank.


    Here is my Load DataSet Function:


           Public Function LoadLIMSData() As DataTable


                Dim dataSet As New DataSet()


                LoadLIMSData = dataSet.Tables(0)


            End Function


    And here is my Run Sub:


    Public Sub Run()


                Dim report As LocalReport = New LocalReport()

                report.ReportPath = "..\..\TestReport.rdlc"

                report.DataSources.Add(New ReportDataSource("LIMSDataSet", LoadLIMSData()))



                m_currentPageIndex = 0



            End Sub


    It appears the dataset is not being read, but I cannot figure out why not.

  • I am having a very difficult time getting help with this problem on any ado forum.

    Can someone suggest a firm who, for a fee, can help me?  I have dozens of reports that are complete; however, I just want to skip the reportviewer page and print straight (as in FASTER) to the printer.  Time is money on both sides of this issue.

    Thanks in advance.
