    Hi guys,
         is it possible to use a Web service as the report datasource? I've downloaded and am looking at the VB.ReportExamples application. The report wizard gives me only two choices of datasource, a Database or an Data Object. How do I reference a web service?

    thanks in advance

    Hello Tony,

    Telerik Reporting does not provide its own data layer but depends on the existing .NET objects (DataSet, Data Table, DataView, ADO.NET, lists - for more information on report data binding, please, refer to this help topic). Because of that, the Telerik Reporting Data Source Wizard cannot be used to connect to web service. You can however use the NeedDataSource event for hooking up the web service to the report.
