can you show me the query used in dataset?
For example this query will return this error:
declare @test1 as table(txt  text)
declare @test2 as table( vchr varchar(8))
insert into @test1(txt) values('0123456789')
insert into @test2(vchr) select txt from @test1
select * from @test2

Open in new window

The text in the txt field is too large for the vchr field. When you add

Open in new window

at the top of the query you will get the result. But it might be better to fix the error instead of ignore it.

The error has nothing to do with the report itself. It's the query for Dataset1 that causes the problem.
