SSRS List and Table error -

This is driving me nuts. I coul;d do it in 2005. All I want to do is drag a list to the report,
populate the groups in the list from the dataset and then add a table to the list to bring back the details. I keep getting the error that  "The tablix ‘Tablix7’ has a detail member with inner members. Detail members can only contain static inner members." Please help!

In a Tablix you cannot put dynamic member in a Detail row.  You have to put it into a Group header or Group Footer row.

Steps:

Insert a table into your report.
Set the DataSetName for the Tablix (either in the Properties pane or by dragging a field into the tablix).
In Row Groups, right click the (Details1) group.  Select Add Group –> Parent Group…
In the Tablix group dialog, Select your Group by: clause.  
Check the Add group header checkbox.
Press OK.

Is Tablix synonomous with list?  Do I insert a table in the report body or list?

I don't know what you are referring to as a list, but this link should help you understand what a tablix is.

IT Pros Agree: AI and Machine Learning Key

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

when I look at the toolbox in 2008, I am bringing over the List. It does say tablix for properties.

This should help you understand the differences in the types of tablix.  I haven't used the list type because it didn't feed the needs for any of my reports.  You may need to use a different type of tablix based on what type of data you are trying to present.

List. Use a list to create a free-form layout. You are not limited to a grid layout, but can place fields freely inside the list. You can use a list to design a form for displaying many dataset fields or as a container to display multiple data regions side by side for grouped data. For example, you can define a group for a list; add a table, chart, and image; and display values in table and graphic form for each group value, as you might for an employee or patient record. This is what I need to do for the freeform aspect of it. I was able to do it in 2005.

Did you define the group for the list?  The error indicates you have a grouping issue.
