using vb.net, and it seems the report viewer has changed. Now I create a new item, a Report.rdlc and I don't see how I can select a Datasource. Can someone tell me how to do this?
thanks

When you add the ReportViewer control to your project, it will prompt you for the datasource.

Where is your data?  Do you use the Dataset designer and use tableadapters to pull in data?  OR...do you have code-generated tables in memory?

I am trying with the Dataset Designer otherwise it seems to be very difficult to design the report.

Ok.  You need to add a datasource to your localreport.  If you have custom tables generated in code, they can be used as well with a bit of trickery.  The following is for designer handled tables or query results.

ReportViewer1.LocalReport.DataSources.Add(New Microsoft.Reporting.WinForms.ReportDataSource("MyDataSet", Table))

I believe this line is what you need.
Dim DS As New MyDataSetTableAdapters.MyTableAdapter
        Dim Table As New MyDataSet.MyDataTable

        Table = DS.GetDataBy  'Or whatever your query method is named.


        Me.ReportViewer1.LocalReport.DataSources.Add(New Microsoft.Reporting.WinForms.ReportDataSource("MyDataSet", Table))

       'This is for locally saved reports.
        Me.ReportViewer1.LocalReport.ReportPath = YourPath & "Report1.rdlc"
        Me.ReportViewer1.RefreshReport()
