Visual Studio Report

I am using Visual Studio 2013 Pro, and I am trying to create a report that uses a SQL View as the data set.
I am able to create a link to the data source, and i am able to create a link to the View as a data set.

but then the world seems to go crazy

I have two problems, which are probably linked.

1. The report is only 1 page, there are about 80 rows in my view; I want this report to create one page per row

2. When i add a field from my data set to my report, its add a function instead of the field, so when I drop the cost field, it adds an expression like '=Sum(Fields!COST.Value, "DataSet_Purcahse_Report")'

I am new to the report building in VS and this is the first report i have tried to build.

Please help,

I am working through this now, the book is a good start. Though I am feeling really disappointed by the report builder in VS 2013. Access Reporting seems to be about 3 decades ahead of report building in VS 2013, which is really disappointing.

The MSDN article is about using Matrix, lists and Table, which is ok but not exactly what i am looking for, and provides no support if you just want to have a report that does not use one of those items. (You data formatting options are significantly reduced when using one of the above listed objects)

I am hoping that working in this feature for a bit will help to get a better grip on this tool... I cannot believe i am wishing for something from Access...
