in the code behind you can try the following code as below

reportViewer.LocalReport.DataSources.Clear();
reportViewer.LocalReport.DataSources.Add(new ReportDataSource("datasourcename", source));

"datasourcename" is the name of the data source, you can find it .rdlc file.
source is the variable with data you want to show in the report.

hope this helps.

Hi Jitendra, thank you for replying.
So in my .rdlc file,
my Data Source is called:  "RF"
and
my dataset is called dsSalesDelta
So would would the arguments in new ReportDataSource look like this?

reportViewer.LocalReport.DataSources.Add(new ReportDataSource("RF", dsSalesDelta));

Open in new window
