We are testing use of Business Intelligence Development Studio (the version that comes with SQL Server 2008r2) it’s actually Visual Studio 2008. I’ve applied the latest servicepack. When in a project we don’t see a data tab like we used to in VS2005.

See the attached screenshots, you'll see what I mean.

Have MS dropped this feature in 2008? I know you can work around it, only I find it really useful.

Thanks.

Thanks but I already tried that. The View|Code shows another window altogether with all the report code. The original VS2005 code tab had a neat little dataset picker that enabled you to get at the SQL real easy. I've attached the awful looking View|Code view below, see for yourself it's not like the VS2005 version. Any ideas?
 VS2008 View|Code option is different...

The Data tab was replaced in 2008 with the Report Data tab/toorbar, go to View>Report Data or hit Ctrl+Alt+D to display it.

You can also goto the report on BIDS and in the area outside of the report rt. click, then pick report properties, then click on the code tab.

The solution was correct thanks but it is unfortunate that MS have dropped this feature in the latter version of VS.
