Dataset, Table and DataSource Names in VS 2010 Local Reporting RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    My problem is that i cant values to show in my report. It seems i dont understand where to put what name of what table, Dataset or Source.

    I have a an dataset defined by an XSD that is added to the project looking like this:

    <xs:element name="Dataset_CR" msdata:IsDataSet="true" msdata:Locale="en-US">


            <xs:choice minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="unbounded">

                 <xs:element name="Angebote">


    The application is called Ikarus the data set "Dataset_CR" and the table i want to read out is "Angebote".

    Now a XML snippet from the rdlc:



        <DataSource Name="IKARUS">



                    <ConnectString>/* Local Connection */</ConnectString>






         <DataSet Name="Angebote">




                          <CommandText>/* Local Query */</CommandText>
                          <rd:ObjectDataSourceType>IKARUS.Dataset_CR, Berichte.Datasets.Dataset_CR.Designer.vb, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null</rd:ObjectDataSourceType>


    When trying the wizard for dataset creation in the report data field i select as name the name of the table "Angebote" and in the "available datasets" field then "Dataset_CR (Angebote).

    In the form:


     Dim rds As New Microsoft.Reporting.WinForms.ReportDataSource("Angebote", Dset.Tables(0))

     rds.Name = "IKARUS"



    Could some point me in the direction of what i am doing wrong. The dataset is definatly filled as i can generate a report with another method.

    Thanks for helping, in advance.



    EDIT: Sorry for formating problems

  • If someone knows a good tutorial for using VS Reporting Services in local mode with a dataset not filled directly from a SQL Server, it would also help me and maybe even solve my problem.

    I looked arround but only found tutorials for situations that didn't fit me.

    Thx in advance

  • Try removing the following line, based on you RDLC it looks like rds.Name should be "Anegbote" which is the initial value that you set in the constructor.

     rds.Name = "IKARUS"

  • Sorry that did not fix my problem.

    I have an dataset with the name Dataset_CR

    What name do i have to give the ReportDataSource object in my VB.Net Code?
    The name of Dataset Itself or the name of the table which i want to add specifically.

    When i use the report wizzard what do i have to put into the three availble fields corresponding to the information i used in the code?

    One complete example woudl really help me.
