Using Multi Table Dataset In Standard VS2010 Report

Team -

Please forgive my ignorance here, I am extremely weak.  Seems like this should be extremely easy but for the life of me I can't get it to work.

Environment:
Winforms Application
Local Report
Standard Report (not crystal report)
Dataset with 4 tables all tied together with Jobid (all with primary keys, and fk)
Using Visual Studio 2010

MyDataSet holds 4 tables.  tblJobInfo is main table with Jobid as int.

All three other tables are tied together by jobid int and preview fine.  However, I can't get them added into a report.  I can get the main table data to appear in a "list" control but can't do anything with all the other tables.

What am I missing?  I tried to build a qry that would pull all the data needed into a single dataset but that didn't seem to work.  

Thank you for the education!

Going with use of sub-reports, doesn't appear to be an easy way to do what I want to do.  The reports don't seem to work like the normal winform, can't use related datatables.  it seems all data much appear in a single datatable.

I feel sure there is a better solution but I am going to adapt!
