Hi, I'm trying to add an extra field to an already created Telerik report and am experiencing issues. To add the field I first updated an SQL view in the database. Then I updated the dataset used by the report in Visual studios with the new field as well. Then I added the text boxes and required expression to the Telerik report on the design page. However ever since doing this the report only generates a single blank page. I have checked the sql and dataset and they produce the correct results with the extra field. The only time the report works is if I unselect the single field inside the dataset. I have tried making a new dataset and report but neither seem to have worked. I am unsure what could cause such an issue to occur but it seems to be surrounding the single new field inside the dataset. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Steven,

You're the first one to report such a problem and we can only guess what is the culprit. What you have not mentioned, but is important is what version of Telerik Reporting you're using and how do you bind the report to your dataset.
As from Q1 2010 the preferred way to connect  to data is by using our SqlDataSource (Not to be confused with ASP.NET Data source controls).

Best wishes,

Thanks for the reply. I have since found that the issue was a connection string not connecting to the database correctly.
