How to use DataTable as ReportViewer data source in VB.net, VS2010?

Hello,

Using VB.net on VS2010.  Reworking old project.  

Here's the situation:

* I have a DataTable (myDataTable) with data in it.  It's created programmatically.

* I've created a ReportViewer (myReportViewer) on my WinForm (myForm).

* How do I use myDataTable as myReportViewer's data source?

Specific code example would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

Load the datable to your local report property as follows:
myReportViewer.LocalReport.DataSources.Clear()
Dim rprtDTSource As Microsoft.Reporting.WinForms.ReportDataSource  = new Microsoft.Reporting.WinForms.ReportDataSource(myDataTable.TableName, myDataTable)
myReportViewer.LocalReport.DataSources.Add(rprtDTSource) 
myReportViewer.RefreshReport()
