    Hello Elena,

    You have found an old article, which is not relevant.

    Please check Does Telerik Reporting support XML as a datasource? (from FAQ), and test the approach with reading the XML in code and using the new data object via ObjectDataSource. This is the most general data source component which allows you to access any custom data by using your own data access methods. An example of using ObjectDataSource component is illustrated in Connecting Telerik Reporting to OData feeds.

    More examples are available in the local demos, installed by default under C:\Program Files (x86)\Telerik\Reporting Q1 2015\Examples.

    Let us know if you need any further help.
