  • Hi Richard,

    In Reporting Services, data regions of the report are report items that display the rows of data from report datasets. Data from datasets can be displayed in a table, matrix, list, chart, or gauge data region.

    Data regions expand as needed to display the data from the dataset. Table, Matrix, and List data regions are based on the Tablix data region. A Tablix data region supports multiple row and column groups and with static and dynamic rows and columns.

    When adding data to data region, the corresponding dataset is bounded to the report. If you only want to add the dataset name to the report, you can add a textbox in the report and type the dataset name.

    Hope this helps.

  • Hi Richard ,

    To pull the Dataset name you are using into a report ?

    We have to either read the XML (rdl file) or query the ReportServer.dbo.Catalog
