I am having problems in the code used to display data of a query into a crystal report, when I conect directly to the database it work fine. The first sample works but the second one it shows me an error on the " rpt.SetDataSource(Ciudad_Table)"

Thanks

This code works.
 
Imports System.Data.SqlClient
 
Public Class Form1
 
    Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
 
        Dim rpt As New CrystalReport1() 'The report you created.
        Dim myConnection As SqlConnection
        Dim MyCommand As New SqlCommand()
        Dim myDA As New SqlDataAdapter()
        Dim myDS As New DataSet() 'The DataSet you created.
        Try
            myConnection = New SqlConnection("Data Source=.\SQLExpress;Integrated Security=SSPI;" & _
                                             "Initial Catalog=DSISacc;")
            MyCommand.Connection = myConnection
            MyCommand.CommandText = "SELECT * FROM M_Ciudad"
            MyCommand.CommandType = CommandType.Text
            myDA.SelectCommand = MyCommand
            myDA.Fill(myDS, "M_Ciudad")
            rpt.SetDataSource(myDS)
            CrystalReportViewer1.ReportSource = rpt
        Catch Excep As Exception
            MessageBox.Show(Excep.Message, "Error", MessageBoxButtons.OK, MessageBoxIcon.Error)
        End Try
    End Sub
End Class

Ciudad_Adapter.Fill(Ciudad_Table)
mrptDoc.Load("c:\dis\e-solutions\DSISacc\Cartera.rpt")
mrptDoc.SetDataSource(Ciudad_Table)

SetDataSource requires a Dataset not a datatable.

it would really help me if you could tell me what error you have? where and how is your dataset is declared? how is it filled? I see a tableadapter and a datatable in your code but no trace of a dataset!
