Reporting Viewer RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hallo

    I'm trying to find a simple report tool, and looking into the Reporting viewer.

    But the question, can we use data directly from a Datatable and pass it to a different user form which have the report, or can you only use the SQL data adaptor to get data as Source?

    If this is the case, is there any other reporting tools somebody can recommend?

  • In fact, the Report Viewer not only allows but requires you to use data directly from a DataTable (or other container). It cannot retrieve data from a SQL Database (unless you use it for viewing a remote report from SSRS). When using local reports, you always need to load the data yourself into a DataTable and then pass the DataTable to the ReportViewer.
