VS2010 Reporting

Hi,

I'm having a hard time creating a master-detail report in VS2010. I have the following:
1x Master report for my transaction header info
1x dataset for my master report (with 1x Tableadapter to the transaction header table - no relationships)
1x Subreport for my transaction detail
1x dataset for my subreport (1x tableadapter to transaction detail - no relationships)
1x reportviewer
2x objectdatasources (one for each tableadapter)

My problem is the parameters I've set up don't seem to be filtering any data when I click to view the detail of a transaction. Can someone maybe explain to me in detail how subparameters get passed to an objectdatasource to filter data? Do I need to include a where clause in my select statement?

Here is the report I've created so far:

Yes, you do need to use a where clause in your select statement. Conceptually speaking, the select statement asks to be provided with an entire table or tables. The where clause is what allows you to narrow down the result to the specific records of interest. Let me know if you find that you're still having a problem.

Cheers!

Looks like the parameters were not completely set up. This needs to be done in:
1) The Report-data section of the subreport (From the top menu click view->report data)
2) In the Filters tab on tablix properties of the subreport (right-click the row->tablix properties)
3) In subreport properties on the parameters tab of the master report (right-click the subreport on the master report->subreport properties)

Thanks all
