Using Shared Data Source in Web Form?

Can anyone help?
Im using Visual Studio 2005 with SQL Server 2005 and specifically SS Reporting Services.

I've created some reports thru the Report Designer and so I have a Shared Data Source (with an .rds extension).

My question is this:
If I start a new .aspx web form, Is there any way I can use this .rds shared data source as the data source for the report i will create on this web form?

I tried to drag it to the form but it wont work.
It's got all the properties set and all I would have to do is drag the fields to the form.
Lemme know.

your going to need to use a seperate datasource, especially if you have a seperate dataset associated to a post back other than the reportviewer posting back....

you don't want the entire web page posting when reportviewer displays reports.

But, right now Im deploying the reports to my reportserver-
I will look into using thereport viewer in the future.

do you know if its possible to use the .rds file as my datasource for the web form?

or, could i add the asp:datasource tags myself to the code-behind page?

add the asp datasource tags
