  • Hi Anil,

    This is a know issue which you can see in the link:https://connect.microsoft.com/SQLServer/feedback/details/648560/subreport-with-shared-dataset-throws-error
    This issue occurs only on Business Integrated Development Studio (BIDS) and use a shared dataset in subreport. And it is fixed in SQL Server Reporting Services 2012. So you can avoid this issue by changing the shared dataset to embedded dataset or deploy the shared dataset to Report Server and view report on Report Manage.

    If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.
