When working in SSRS in Visual Studio 2008 I have created a report when I preview the report it crash and drop me out of VS. If it is a small report I can preview it. These reports are on the server and other can bring up the same reports and have no problems. Is there a setting in VS that could be causing this problem?

You probably want to start by checking your event viewer logs to see what exactly is causing the crash. Could be a million things without any further info.
See if you can find the error message in the event log and go from there.

How many records does the dataset of the crashing report return?  Sometimes BIDS can't handle large amounts and crashes to desktop as you've experienced.

When I'm in a situation like that I usually "solve" this by adding a TOP clause (SELECT TOP 1000 ...) during development.  Don't forget to remove it once the report is ready for deployment!

Also, check if you've got all latest service packs installed for both SQL Server and Visual Studio.

SQL prompt by Redgate was causing the problem.
