Service datasource for Report viewer (rdlc)

When adding a new datasource for a rdlc, there is an option for getting the data from a service reference. Does that mean that I can create a WCF service and use it as the data source for the report viewer? If so, links to tutorials or sample projects will be helpful.

Thanks

It looks like you can, the below references a normal webservice .asmx, not WCF:
