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?
