Hi experts

I have a project which holds all my datasets and one which holds all my reports.
Now, I want to use the datasets from this other project in my reports.

How can I do that?
I already tried to use my dataset-object as datasource, but when I'm doing that none of my tables shows any columns.

thanks for the interessting link.
but I don't really understand how you get your dataset into your report project. You create a scheme in project1 and use it in project2 but how?

You will need to add a reference in project 2 to project 1 and your dataset (if public) should be visible.

I did everything you said.
But after those steps I had to add a new connection (with the database-wizard of cr) which pointed to my xsd-file.
Now it seems to work.
I don't really understand why it didn't work they way said :-/
