SSRS 2008 Combine Two Data Sources in One Report

Experts, I am trying to combine two data sets in one report that share a common ID called "Order". I have both data sets setup and the tablix in the report. One data source hold Date info about Projects and the other holds cost. The cost dataset is returning empty when I run it. Here is the code I'm using for it. I dont think I'm using the WHERE IN clause correctly. I'm not an SQL programmer so please dumb it down for me
SELECT     [Project ID], [Project Description], [Planning Order], [Order], [Shared/Specifc], AuthAmt, [Actuals to Date], FAC, [Rmng Fcst], [EOY Budget/Plan], 
                      [2010 YTD Actuals], [EOY Fcst]
FROM         EPMSAPExcel
WHERE     ([Order] IN ('" + Join(Parameters!OrderNumbers.Value, "', '")+"'))

I am afraid you cannot join the data from two separate datasets inside of RS, you will have to do that at the database level via your original query or stored procedure.  You can nest objects in RS or create subreports where the inner object uses a value from the outer object as a parameter to gather data to display, but it is nested something like this not Joined.
