remember to set the table on the .Fill() to the same table name you used in the report.

Ok, It seems to work, thanks.

but when the report opens it expands the table it is placed in.  Can I set a size for the report to be so it will fit into the area of the page that I want it to take up.

i.e. the width be no more than 500

this example shows how you can export to PDF

once it's exported, then you can use System.Diagnostic.Process.Start("YOUR_PDF_FILE_PATH") to open this file using a pdf viewer.

- hope this helps
