    I am having trouble with Local Report Viewer.  can' use data source.  Here are my steps.

    1).  Create new aspx page

    2).  Created Dataset and can see data

    3).  Created report .rdlc file

    4).  Put Local Report Viewer on ASPX Page

    5).  Changed Choose Report to look at report.rdlc file

    6).  Put ObjectDataSource on aspx page and configured.

    7).  Clicked on  Choose Data Source of report viewer and I get the following.  Sorry I can't load a picture.  The following is a pop up box.  It will not allow me to choose a data source.


                                                    Choose Data Sources

    Choose Instances for Data Source used in the report.

    Report Data Source    Data Source Instance

                                                                       OK           Cancel

    Go to the ObjectDataSource and select Configure Data Source.  This should create a tableadapter for your ObjectDataSource.

    Do you have a data source?  Did you add a dataset to your report?  If you don't have the dataset already in the report, then you will need to build the dataset manually.

    I'm not sure what  you mean.  I added a dataset before creating the report.  But when I click on Choose Data source of the report viewer it does not show the dataset.

    I'm having some issues using VS 2010.  Have you considered upgrading to a newer version of Visual Studio?  Visual Studio Community 2013 is free and is essentially VS Pro 2013.
