    How do I let this XML file (rdlc file) in a Reporting Services project know that there is a DataSet in another file in the same project?

    The error message I get at the beginning of the run time is that the Tablix needs at least one DataSet.

    Thanks, - MyCatAlex

  • Hi ,

    You want to use multiple dataset in one RDLC project right?

    For this request, you could check the solution in this thread : Use Multiple Tables in RDLC

    Also there are some guidance in the tutorial for mutiple datasets and reports : guide for creating standalone .rdlc reports with ssrs

  • Hi ,

    You want to use multiple dataset in one RDLC project right?

    For this request, you could check the solution in this thread : Use Multiple Tables in RDLC

    Also there are some guidance in the tutorial for mutiple datasets and reports : guide for creating standalone .rdlc reports with ssrs

    Regards,

    Lukas

  • Lucas hi,

    Multiple datasets will be an icing on the cake. First I want to make one dataset work. I need to check your pointers and if they work, I will mark you post as answer.

    My goal is to make 2-3 workable methods to create SQL Server reports.

    Thank you much - MyCatAlex

  • Lucas hi,

    I am making progress and the link you've posted has helped. I am still not at the finished line but probably getting there. The code at the link is garbage but can be modified sensibly, I think, and this is what I am trying to do.

    Thanks, - MyCatAlex
