Local Report in hosted environment loses report viewer data RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a .rdlc report that works fine on my development machine but when I sent it to my host and look at the report viewer smart tag under choose data sources the dialog box is empty.

    Hence the report returns blank with no data.

    Looking at the same control smart tag on the dev machine the dialog box has the datasource.

    The source code for both report locations is the same which shows the datasource.

    I am using vs2008 express and sql 2008 on the host.

    any ideas on how I can get the datasource into the datasource box.

  • Go back to where you are pulling the data from the database. Are you sure you're trapping and errors and displaying them? Check if the data is present right after the database call. I don't know how you are getting the data or passing it to the report so I can't give you specifics. But the point is to see if your database access ever returned any data in the first place.
