Database Expert questions

I created a dataset by adding a new item, creating the connectionstring with the gui/wizard, etc...  

The dataset is there as test.xsd in the APP_CODE folder...  I can click it and see that it the data structure of the field names.  

When I click my crystal report "report1.rpt" and then go to the field explorer and right click the database fields and go to "Database Expert", I go to ADO.NET folder, I see the dataset there, but when I open up the tree, it doesn't show the table I am querying... it saying, "No Items found.."  

What the am I doing wrong?  Why won't it show.???

In the Crystal Report, right-click on the folder that holds the database fields, and there should be a popup menu that includes an option  Verify Database.  Click that and see what it says... when it says database is up to date, you should have your items.

There is nothing in the database fields, that is why I need to use Database Expert...  

In Database Expert, there is nothing under the test dataset...

Just figured it out...

The problem was in the database expert, I didn't click the use dataset from class, then when that is clicked it enables / makes visible the Dataset names...

I give it a name and now I see it.

I am giving you the points because you pointed me in the right direction.

Thanks for your help.
