I have created a blank Crystal report called test.rpt.

I would like to manually add the information from a dataset to the report.

The report is loaded into Crystal Report Viewer.

The below code works in adding the report to the viewer but how would I connect my dataset to it?

I think I am close, just need help with the final display.

private void rptBrowser_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
            // Create new DataSet
            mydb thedb = new mydb();
            SqlDataAdapter myds = null;

            string _sql = "select LogName, Firstname, Lastname from sysUser";

            myds = thedb.myDataAdapter(_sql);

            ReportDocument cryRpt = new ReportDocument();
            cryRpt.Load(myglobal_properties.FP1 + "test.rpt");
            rptView.ReportSource = cryRpt;
